What are the benefits of straighter teeth?
Improved Oral Health
Straighter teeth are easier and take less time to clean. There’s also less chance of suffering from periodontal disease and having food particles becoming trapped between your teeth.
This means, it will be a lot easier for you to maintain a fresh, healthy smile.
It’s no secret that a straighter smile can help to improve your appearance. Straighter teeth are often something to be desired by many people, and an orthodontic treatment can help you achieve a straighter smile.
Straight Teeth Last Longer
Biting and chewing food generates quite a lot of pressure, and straighter teeth are able to better cope with this pressure.
Straighter teeth also reduce wear and tear associated with chewing and biting down, which in turn increases the health of your teeth in the long term.
Reduced Risk of Jaw Trouble
A straighter smile balances out the pressure caused by chewing and biting, which reduces stress on the jaw. This is very beneficial to the sensitive temporomandibular joints (jaw joints).
How long does orthodontic treatment take?
No two patients suffer from the exact issue, as there are different levels of severity and orthodontic issues.
However, on average, you can expect your orthodontic treatment to last between 12 to 24 months.
