• Straight Teeth Are More Important than You Think

    on Feb 14th, 2017

Smile imperfections are natural. In fact, it’s more natural to have an imperfection than it is to not have one. Braces, veneers, dental implants – these dental options are great options to fix our smile. And it’s important to get these imperfections fixed – because it will eventually affect your health.

Straight teeth make it easier to chew up your food properly, aiding in proper digestion. Crooked or crowded teeth make chewing difficult because the misalignment causes your bite to be irregular. It is also easier to get food trapped in the crevices. Cleaning is difficult because it is tough moving around your teeth, making your mouth susceptible to dental issues in the future. In addition, tooth imperfections can cause speech impediments, like lisps. These issues not only affect the way you speak, but can also affect your confidence throughout life so taking care of the situation is important.

Dental imperfections not only affect your appearance, but they can also do further damage to your mouth. Protruding teeth are more prone to chipping and breaking. If you lead an active lifestyle, it may be difficult to find a proper mouth guard.

Straight teeth will not only look great, but they will also help by boosting your confidence and self-esteem. After all, the prettier your smile is, the more you want show it off. You’re happy, so you treat yourself well. You treat yourself better, your overall health will improve. So, make an appointment with your Castro Valley dentist to discuss a treatment plan. The pros definitely outweigh the cons.
