Top 3 Reasons have your Teeth Straightened

Do crowded or crooked make you self-conscious about your appearance? If you have always wanted to straighten your teeth years, but you are still sitting on the fence, here are the most important benefits of straightening your smile, from improving your looks to your long-term oral health.

Straighter Teeth are Healthy

All of us know that straight teeth look great, but did you know they are healthier too? Crooked and crowded teeth can be extremely difficult to brush. Tooth surfaces, left uncleaned, can result in plaque which can cause cavities, gum disease, and other dental problems.

Properly aligned teeth can be easily brushed and flossed, helping you avoid several dental problems.

Straighter Teeth Work Better

Teeth straightening is more than just improving your looks. They are essential to be able to properly speak and eat. Misaligned teeth can these activities uncomfortable and awkward. Crooked teeth may develop sharp edges that irritate the soft tissues, or even prevent you from making certain speech sounds. In some people, this can erode a person’s self-esteem.

Straighter Teeth Makes Others Feel Better About You

Having straighter teeth will not only help you feel better about yourself, but it also tends to improve other people’s impression of you. Research has shown that people with straight teeth and a beautiful smile tend to be seen as not only more attractive but also more intelligent and professional. This can impact success in both personal and business relationships.

4-Step Oral Health Guide for Easter

It is Easter time! And what is Easter without CHOCOLATE? Unfortunately, chocolate (because of the sugar it contains) can mean bad news for your teeth and oral health. How you and your children manage the increased intake of sugary products is very important.

Here’s a 4-Step guide to keep Easter a happy holiday without letting your children’s teeth suffer.

Limit chocolate and other sweet treats to meal times

Children may be tempted to have chocolate every few hours but this is not good for their teeth. Every time you eat anything sweet, teeth are under acid attack for almost an hour. Having a sweet and sugary treat every few hours keeps the teeth under constant acid attack. This can certainly cause tooth decay.

The best way out is to limit the amount of chocolate children eat, maybe just one small Easter egg and minimize the frequency of chocolate eating. Rather than constant snacking, keeping chocolate limited to meal times reduce the frequency of teeth coming into contact with sugar.

Select low-sugar chocolate alternatives

Choose sugar-free and low-sugar chocolates to reduce exposure and damage to teeth. Any ingredients that end in ‘ose’ show that the product contains sugar.

Offer Healthy Snack Options

Good oral health begins with a diet rich in vitamins, minerals and that can come from fresh fruit and vegetables. Help your children develop a taste for these instead of simply sweets and chocolate.

Stop chocolate an hour before bed

Sugary foods erode the enamel on the teeth. Brushing directly after eating can cause more damage by brushing away the weakened surface. Allow your children’s teeth time to recover and then allow them to brush right before they go to sleep.

How Important are Dental implants?

A dental implant is a small yet extremely strong, screw made up of a titanium alloy. It is used to replace damaged or missing natural teeth. The implant is placed surgically by drilling into the jawbone. The screw firmly connects the artificial teeth to the jaw.

Implants are commonly used to replace missing teeth but they can also be used to provide support to removable dentures.

Here is a look at why dental implants are important for many people.

Appearance

Even one missing tooth can make a person extremely self-conscious about appearance as well as affect the confidence. This, in turn, may affect your work and personal life. There is no difference, in appearance, between a tooth with a dental implant and a natural one. So, dental implants can help to boost the patient’s overall confidence.

Oral Health

Losing a tooth disturbs the balance in the dental structure. The gap left by a tooth may cause neighboring teeth to shift. This could lead to further oral problems, such as bone loss. Dental implants can solve this problem.

Comfort

A single hard bit of food coming in-between an exposed molar root and the neighboring tooth can be uncomfortable, even painful. Losing your ability to properly chew can prevent you from enjoying food. Dental implant can change that.

However, it is important that the procedure is carried out by a skilled and experienced dental implant expert. The good news is that dental implants have a success rate over 95%.
