10 Feb How Your Teeth Affect Your Overall Health
Straighter Teeth for a Healthier Mouth
At Euksuzian Orthodontics, we’re passionate about helping our patients achieve beautiful, healthy smiles – but the reasons for that extend far beyond aesthetics. While a beautiful smile is important for aesthetics and psychological benefits like improving confidence and self-esteem, there are a variety of other benefits that come with a straight smile, and one of those is improved overall health. Having straighter teeth helps to ward off problems in oral health as well as prevent some overall health problems, helping to create a healthier you in the long-term.
Better Smile, Healthier You
At the most basic level, straighter teeth are healthier to keep clean. This is because crooked, crowded teeth create tight nooks and crannies that are difficult to clean with a toothbrush and floss, offering the perfect spot for bacteria to grow and multiply. These bacteria can eventually lead to dental decay, cavities, and gum disease – all of which can cause major problems in the health of your mouth.
