Interceptive Orthodontics (Braces)
Braces are a tried and true way to straighten your teeth, relying on brackets and wires to gently shift your teeth into straight and upright positions over time.
Many patients want braces because they desire a beautiful smile, but there are other benefits many don’t consider.
3 Benefits of Braces in Wilmington, DE
Having a straight smile can certainly boost your confidence, but let’s explore how beautifully aligned teeth can benefit your oral health.
#1 Caring for Straight Teeth Is Simple
When your teeth are lined up all in a row, there are fewer hiding places for plaque and bacteria to collect. Brushing and flossing are easier and more effective.
#2 Straight Teeth Reduce Tooth Wear
A misaligned bite puts stress on specific teeth while others have nothing to do during chewing. Aligning your bite is an excellent way to relieve that stress, which may mean fewer cavities or fractures in the future.
#3 Straight Teeth Can Contribute to Your Success
Success can be measured by your happiness. When you feel good about yourself, you are certainly happier. And feeling confident shows in everything you do.
