Top 4 reasons to straighten your teeth in 2018

Have you been putting of having orthodontic treatment for misaligned, crooked, protruding or widely spaced teeth? Don’t let an orthodontic ailment go untreated for any longer in 2018 and make this the year you transform your smile.


The first and most obvious incentive that springs to mind when we think about people’s motivation to straighten their teeth is the cosmetic difference that treatment can make. Orthodontic treatment can totally transform the aesthetics of a person’s smile but this extends to their whole facial aesthetic. For example, a person with an underbite may have a protruding chin as a result and in undergoing orthodontic treatment, their chin shifts back into a more natural-looking position, affecting their whole facial aesthetic.


If you have aesthetically prominent unnatural gaps in your teeth, this can gravely affect your confidence and your desire to smile; it’s important to remember that the way you look and the way you feel are not mutually exclusive, so if you are unhappy with your smile the chances are you will feel unhappy inside. The aesthetic change that orthodontic treatment yields can have a strong positive effect that can be even more valuable.

Healthier teeth

Orthodontic ailments bring about gaps that your mouth shouldn’t normally have to deal with. These gaps can make maintaining good dental health and hygiene challenging as food particles become lodged in areas that your toothbrush cannot reach. As a result, these food particles are left to settle and can later be a primary cause for the build-up of plaque and tartar and eventually, gum disease. In undergoing orthodontic treatment to tackle these gaps, your teeth will be easier to clean and less susceptible to the problems outlined above.
