Wear on teeth-
When teeth hit unevenly and slide to meet. This can cause wear facets on the enamel. The enamel is a hard outer covering of the teeth. If it wears thin, you may experience hot and cold sensitivity. It may stain easier and be more suceptiable to decay. When teeth are left in a compromised position for many years it can misshape the teeth and require extensive dental work.
Cleaning and calculus buildup-
When teeth are aligned it is easier to floss and brush. Studies have found that plaque buildup and heart disease go hand in hand. Yes, it's that important to keep your teeth and gums healthy! Why not make it easy?
Jaw Joint Health-
We use our jaw joints to speak and eat everyday. Jaw joint health is vital for a good quality of life. If your teeth do not meet in a healthy position you will compensate by using your jaw to slide forward, backward or side to side. These un-natural movements can cause inflamation and degeneration of the joint. The pain can be severe.
Spaces or drifting teeth-
Do you have areas that catch food? By closing spaces with Braces or Invisalign, you can improve your gum health. If you are missing a tooth, we sometimes see teeth drifting into that space. When this happens it makes it hard for your dentist to replace the missing tooth. It may even harm the bone supporting the adjacent teeth.
Improving the alignment of teeth will improve speech.
