While most people know that there is a benefit from undergoing orthodontic treatment, some do not realise that teeth straightening treatment can offer much more than just aesthetics. Straight teeth are easier to clean and that can make them more resistant to decay and less vulnerable to gum disease and tooth loss.
At Harley Street Dental Clinic, we are passionate about helping patients achieve straight and healthy smiles. Our experienced orthodontist in Harley Street will examine your teeth thoroughly, look signs of an irregular bite and help you determine which straightening treatment is right for you. Here are a few good reasons why you should visit an orthodontist in Harley Street.
Improve your self-esteem
Patients with crooked, misaligned, crowded or gapped teeth are often reluctant to socialise, because of how they feel about their appearance. If you feel embarrassed because of your dental flaws, undergoing orthodontic treatment can do wonders for your self-esteem by taking all the stress out of smiling.
Improve your oral and overall health
Patients with many missing teeth often find it impossible to chew food properly. When food is not chewed appropriately, serious problems can develop with digestion and nourishment, which can have negative consequences on your overall health. Moreover, crooked teeth can harbour bacteria that can lead to gum disease and tooth decay. By visiting an orthodontist in Harley Street, you can receive the correct treatment and restore your oral and overall health.
Identify new problems
Your mouth and teeth are constantly changing, and this is especially true for children. Regular visits allow these changes to be recognised at an early stage, so that any adjustments to your treatment plan can be made. For instance, patients who have had orthodontics as children, may have relapsed and this can create the necessity for additional treatment.
Keep your dental costs at check
Untreated orthodontic problems can lead to extensive and expensive dental problems. Orthodontic treatment is an investment in your oral health, because it can keep future dental care costs in check and help you avoid unnecessary pain and discomfort.
