Why spend money on braces in Coral Springs and endure the discomfort when everyone who matters accepts you for who you are? Unfortunately, orthodontists are saying otherwise.
According to the American Association of Orthodontists, teeth misalignment is not just an aesthetic concern but can pose health problems. Let’s find out what problems can arise from having crooked teeth.
People with crooked teeth are twice as likely to develop gum disease than those with straight teeth because crooked teeth are more difficult to clean.
Even if the effort is there, you won’t be able to efficiently clean the spaces between your teeth, especially the areas along the gumline. When plaque and tartar are allowed to accumulate, they can start irritating your gum tissues leading to inflammation and eventually resulting in gum infection.
Did you know that crooked teeth wear out faster? For example, if your lower teeth are crooked, several of your teeth could protrude and rub against your upper teeth.
It may not be a problem with you now, but over time, as your enamel continues to rub against each other, the protective outer layer of your teeth can prematurely wear out, putting you susceptible to cavities and tooth abscesses.
Bacteria and plaque lodge in your teeth if you cannot clean them properly due to misalignment. You'll have bad breath if you can’t get all the bacteria out. The only way to solve this problem is to fix the misalignment with braces.
