Why have orthodontic treatment?

Considering orthodontic treatment and need persuading? By the time you finish reading this blog, hopefully you’ll have some very very good reasons to if you didn’t before! 


Orthodontic treatment is not limited to straightening teeth or improving the aesthetic appearance of your teeth. Orthodontic issues can extend to other aspects of your health and this should certainly be reason enough to consider treatment – an investment into your future!


Upkeep of your facial structure and tooth structure

If you have unnatural gaps in your teeth, this can disrupt how your other teeth sit, forcing them out of position and eventually causing issues with breaking down foods and speech.


Reduce your chances of developing gum disease

When you have unnatural gaps in your teeth, bacteria such as plaque and tartar can settle more easily, increasing your chances of developing gum disease. Sure hygienist scale and polish treatments can help combat this but if left untreated the wear and tear may cause the need for more serious intervention.


You don’t have to worry about your appearance changing during treatment

Today there are numerous discreet options for those who are anxious about their appearance changing during the treatment period. Orthodontic treatment is much less invasive as in previous years, both in terms of comfort, disruption to your day-to-day life as well as where aesthetics are concerned.
