Why Should I Straighten My Teeth? 

22/11/2022

Straightened teeth are the fastest-growing trend within cosmetic dentistry. Everybody is doing it! Should you too? In this day and age, we are very invested in self-improvement and improving our health. 

There are numerous reasons why people choose to have their teeth straightened, from self-esteem issues to other problems with eating and speaking. Thanks to the new advances in orthodontic care, there are many options to straighten your teeth. 

 Here are a few reasons why you should straighten your teeth: 

Obviously…to straighten your teeth! 

This one is obvious – straight teeth can change the way we look, eat and make our lives much easier.  

Many people believe that individuals with straight teeth have more attractive features than those with crooked teeth, such as being happy, and that straight teeth are associated with good health.  

Even orthodontic marketing has persuaded people that having straight teeth is not only a cosmetic benefit, but also a health benefit. 

Straight teeth = Healthier teeth 

Due to age, teeth will wear down naturally over time. But crooked teeth wear down quicker because of the friction of the teeth rubbing together and are more likely to develop tooth decay and gum diseases. That’s why it is important to take care of your teeth and keep them healthy. 

it is easier to clean and take care of straight teeth as the build-up of plaque and bacteria in unreachable places will be easier to reach. 

Prevent breakage 

Broken teeth are a struggle for anyone, and the likelihood of a person breaking their teeth increases if their teeth are not straight. 

 This is due to the clenching and grinding that can be related to the abnormal wear pattern developed, and can become dangerous to the teeth, even if you bite a piece of food the wrong way. To prevent the breakage of your teeth, it is best to improve their shape. 

Prevent Jaw Strain and Pain 

People with crooked teeth have a tendency to alter their jaws to allow them to correct movements when talking or eating. Sometimes crowded teeth also pressure the gums and jaw supporting the bone, which can cause many problems for example neck/ear pain headaches, and other issues.  

The right jaw alignment can be achieved when straightening your teeth, allowing your muscles to be more relaxed and will be able to work better/properly. Finally, no more clenching, pain, or teeth grinding! You’ll be able to be more comfortable when smiling and eating and overall the quality of your life will improve. 

Increase your self-esteem  

40% of the UK population admits their unhappiness with the appearance of their teeth. Crooked teeth may keep you from smiling and feeling good about your appearance, this makes it more challenging to build relationships with people around you, especially when you feel embarrassed about your smile. 

Straightening your teeth makes your smile healthier and more beautiful, making you feel more confident with yourself, which can help you socialize even more and improve current relationships. 

There are many benefits to teeth straightening, and the process does not need to be invasive. If you want straighter teeth, and to enjoy all of the above benefits visit our teeth straightening page to learn more about how we can help.
