While braces offer aesthetic advantages, did you know that they can also boost your oral health?

Who doesn’t want that straight, Hollywood smile? While most people don’t come by it naturally it can still easily be achieved with Bracesorthodontics. Not only will braces give you a more confident and attractive smile but it also comes with other health benefits. Find out in what ways getting braces in Marion, AR from your Marion dentist Dr. Wayne Cook can improve your oral health.

Why might my Marion dentist recommend braces?

There is a variety of issues that can benefit from orthodontics:

  • Bad bites
  • Crooked or protruding teeth
  • Overcrowding
  • Misaligned teeth
  • Poor jaw alignment

If you are dealing with any of these problems then braces will not only give you the smile you want but will also improve your oral health.

How can braces boost my oral health?

If you are dealing with crooked or crowded teeth it can be challenging to brush and floss thoroughly, particularly between hard-to-reach areas. When you miss these areas you allow bacteria and plaque to build up and turn into tartar. When this happens decay and gum disease are more likely to occur, which can lead to other serious complications like tooth and bone loss.

But braces can straighten your smile and eliminate overlapping teeth, making it significantly easier for you to brush and floss all surfaces of your teeth.

Also, a bad bite can affect one’s ability to chew or speak properly. This can cause unnecessary wear and tear on healthy enamel, which can lead to damaged teeth and jaw issues. By wearing braces, you can prevent these problems from happening altogether.

If you want to prevent decay and gum disease from affecting your beautiful smile then it’s time to find out if braces are the right treatment for you. Schedule a consultation today and let your dentist in Marion give you a smile to be proud of.
