Straightening teeth for your health

Although you might assume that getting your teeth straightened is just for aesthetics, there are very good medical reasons to do so.

MAINTAINING ORAL HEALTH

In addition to being a sign of a lovely smile, straight teeth also signify good oral health.

Your chewing habits, dental health, gum health, and even your daily life can all be negatively impacted by having crooked teeth.

Anyone with even slightly misaligned teeth might experience difficulties with maintaining oral hygiene. After all, crooked teeth are more difficult to clean properly. As a result, there is a higher chance that plaque accumulates to the point of tooth decay and cavitation.

With misaligned teeth, the inconsistent enamel wear can lead to greater wear and tear on your teeth, opening the door to tooth decay, cavities and gum disease.

OTHER HEALTH ISSUES

Depending on how severe the misalignment is, crooked teeth can further lead to a number of issues.

One area of misalignment can harm the neighbouring teeth. Other issues include tooth sensitivity, gum recession, jaw ache, difficulty chewing and biting and speech issues.

If you often find yourself with headaches or migraines, this may even be due to your crooked teeth.

Of course, the look of uneven teeth is a significant consideration for many people. If you don’t have a flawless smile, you may feel self-conscious about your teeth and decide to get them straightened. You don’t need a medical reason to want to get the smile you’re proud of.

The best age for teeth straightening

Are you researching teeth straightening on behalf of your child? The teenage years, before the jaw bone and roots of each tooth are fully formed, is actually the ideal time to straighten teeth. This is why it’s crucial to take your child to the dentist and orthodontist Melbourne on a frequent basis.

If Dr Wexler determines that your child needs orthodontic treatment, we will discuss at which point in your child’s growth is best for the development of their smile.

Is it too late to get adult teeth straighteners? Absolutely not. Adult braces are still highly effective, and if you’ve always wanted that perfect smile, we absolutely encourage you to go for it rather than always regretting missing out.

There’s also the consideration that teeth that were once relatively straight may start to affect you later in life. That’s right, our teeth can shift position as we age, and this is generally to become more crooked rather than straighter.

The time-tested way to straighten teeth

There are several ways to straighten your teeth, some of which will work better for you than others. Even a significantly misaligned bite can be corrected.

The typical approach to aligning your teeth is with braces.

We’ve all heard of traditional braces before. Metal braces may have a nasty reputation, but they work, and they’re good at getting the job done. Often, they are also the least expensive way to straighten your teeth.

Teeth straighteners – FAQs

 

Can I straighten my teeth at any age?

Yes, while it’s most common for children and teenagers to wear braces or aligners, adults can also straighten their teeth. The process safely moves the teeth into a new position, whether you’re dealing with a single crooked tooth or a more complex dental issue.

How long does it take to straighten teeth?

Treatment time will vary depending on the severity of the dental issues and the type of treatment chosen. Most patients wear braces for 18-24 months, but your dentist or orthodontist will provide a personalised estimate.

How often should I see my dentist or orthodontist during treatment?

Regular visits every 6-8 weeks are essential during treatment to check progress and make any necessary adjustments. This ensures your teeth are moving correctly and keeps your treatment on track.

What happens after my teeth are straightened?

Once your teeth are straightened, you’ll typically need to wear retainers to keep your teeth in their new positions. This is an essential part of maintaining your new smile.
