Dangers of having crooked teeth

Believe it or not having crooked teeth can not only make you feel uncomfortable about the way you look it can also be dangerous for your overall health.

Here are some reasons why it’s important to get those teeth straightened by a good orthodontist. A number of dentists are currently offering orthodontic treatments to suit all individuals.


Easier to clean those teeth

Getting your teeth straightened by a specialist Orthodontist can make it easier to clean between those teeth as one of the biggest challenges of metal braces is removing all the food that gets stuck between the brackets and wires. This can lead to plaque build up and eventually tooth decay if you don’t brush or floss your teeth on a daily basis. Inman Aligners and Clear Aligners are removable which mean that unlike traditional metal braces you can take them out when you eat, clean your teeth and floss.

Healthier teeth and gums

An overcrowded mouth can lead to swollen gums which are signs of periodontal disease. When teeth are properly aligned, gums fit more securely around the teeth. This creates the strongest and healthiest defence against potential periodontal problems. Comfortable and clear Invisalign aligners gently and gradually move your teeth into the proper position without the hassle of wearing metal brackets and wires that not only affect your appearance but also how you eat and clean your teeth.

Overall better health

Some people may not realise that your teeth and gums tell a story about your overall health.

Tooth decay and periodontal disease are caused by bacteria. If left untreated, periodontal disease and tooth decay can cause bad breath, mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums and even tooth loss.

Illnesses related to poor oral health include: heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, premature birth and diabetes. Invisalign aligners make daily oral hygiene easier, and help reduce the risk of serious health problems.

Straightening those crooked teeth can alleviate the issues caused by an improper bite, including jaw problems, speech or chewing difficulties, and increased wear on tooth enamel. One of the obstacles to orthodontic treatment is the unattractive, fixed metal bracket and wires associated with traditional braces. Although clear brackets have been introduced, the wire that goes through the brackets remains visible so when speaking and posing for photos this can sometimes be a confidence issue particularly for teenagers or grown adults who do a lot of public speaking.
