3 benefits you want to know about having straight teeth

Ortho3 in Sydney’s CBD and Bondi Junction can help you improve your health by straightening your teeth.

A beautiful smile with functional benefits

Many of our patients visiting our Sydney CBD and Bondi Junction practice locations want to straighten their teeth for aesthetic reasons. Most of our patients don’t realise how beneficial a straight smile can be, not just to your appearance but to your health.

Many dentists and orthodontists will agree that the health of your teeth is linked to your overall health. By improving one, you can work to improve the other in unison. Dr Kerry Lester would like people who are considering orthodontic treatment to know all of the benefits of straightening your teeth, beyond just achieving a smile that you are visually comfortable with.

The top 3 benefits of straightening your teeth include:

Teeth are easier to clean when they are straight

When patient’s teeth are in a straight and even positioning it makes them easier to clean. By correcting crooks you can simplify your oral hygiene process by eliminating those hard to reach areas. Plaque can build up in the spaces between crooked teeth, which can ultimately lead to decay. Straight teeth can also make flossing easier as the floss slides between the teeth with ease.

By correcting your bite you can alleviate chronic jaw, neck and head pain

By correcting your bite you can alleviate chronic jaw, neck and head pain. An overbite or a mismatched jaw can cause a host of problems when it comes to your overall health. A misaligned bite can place a significant amount of stress on the jawbone, which is accentuated when a person eats or speaks. The stress placed on the jaw can lead to headaches, as well as head and neck pain.

By correcting jaw misalignments you can help curb these concerns and alleviate or reduce the associated discomfort.

Great oral health is related to great overall health

At Ortho3 in Sydney’s CBD and Bondi Junction, we are passionate about improving our patients’ health as well as helping them straighten their smile. Research has shown that the health of your gums is linked to your overall health. This means by straightening your teeth, alleviating jaw problems and by simplifying your oral hygiene, you can even improve your overall health.
