If you are an adult and have lived your whole life with crooked teeth, you may be wondering why straightened teeth are important. Alternatively, you may want to know why you should spend so much money on what may seem like a cosmetic treatment for your child. Learn the benefits below.
One of the main benefits of straight teeth is that tooth decay is less prevalent. By decreasing the size and number of surfaces that are touching, you can decrease the risk of cavities. Plus, straight teeth are easier to brush and floss, which can encourage better hygiene as well. If you want to help your child build these habits at a young age or help yourself regain these habits, make the habits easier to develop.
A beautiful smile can increase self-confidence. If you feel awkward about your teeth, you may attempt to hide your smile, which can leave you unable to express happiness. If you straighten your teeth, you can reveal your personality and emotions to the world, leading to better social acceptance and a better life overall.
People with straighter teeth are often perceived as more successful, competent, and trustworthy. They also often have better professional success and personal financial success. Whether you need a leg up at work or you want to set your child up for success, orthodontics is a great investment.
