Perfectly straight teeth are more than just aesthetically pleasing, we also know that straight teeth are also better for your health. Orthodontically speaking, the misalignment of your teeth (malocclusion) might mean that there are serious problems occurring in your jawline, such as overcrowding and underbite. Luckily, orthodontic treatment can help to correct these problems to give you a beautiful and healthy smile.
Now let’s think about the aesthetic value behind a confident smile. Have you ever noticed that some of the most beautiful people have perfectly symmetrical faces? This is partly because symmetry suggests good genetic health and skeletal bone structure. Having a perfect smile can actually make you feel better about yourself. A nice smile with straight teeth has a huge impact on how others perceive your personality and attractiveness. A bright healthy smile radiates confidence and self esteem!
Well-aligned teeth are easier to keep clean which may lead to a reduced risk for decay and gum disease. When the upper and lower teeth fit together properly, they are less likely to wear unevenly. Proper alignment and bite also contributes to better overall oral health by fostering a balance between the jaw muscles, joints, bone, and roots of the teeth as well.
