October is Orthodontic Health Month, and what better way to celebrate than by learning more about orthodontic health and how braces can help improve your smile? Our team at Kids Dental Group is here to give you the inside scoop!
Improved Daily Function
Orthodontic health is important for a number of reasons. Did you know that straight teeth not only look good, but they also function better too? When your teeth are properly aligned, it’s easier to bite, chew, and speak.
Having trouble sleeping at night? Orthodontic treatment can help! Misalignment in the jaw can disrupt your sleep. This can stem from bruxism (teeth grinding) or other conditions such as sleep apnea.
Orthodontic treatment has been known to improve sinus issues and open up airway passages for better breathing.
Good Oral Health
Straight teeth are easier to keep clean. When teeth are crowded, food leftovers and bacteria are more likely to get stuck. This makes you more susceptible to cavities and gum disease. When your teeth are properly aligned, you can brush and floss more effectively.
If you’re considering orthodontic treatment, Orthodontic Health Month is the perfect time to take the plunge. Braces and Invisalign can be used to treat a wide variety of dental problems, from crowded teeth to jaw misalignment. With orthodontic technology becoming more advanced all the time, it’s easier than ever to get the smile you’ve always wanted – with comfort and care in mind.
