The hidden benefits to straighter teeth
Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that deals with the positioning and alignment of the teeth, and with the bite – the way in which the jaws meet each other. In this day and age, orthodontic treatment is seen as standard for UK children and teenagers, and is available to those under the age of 18 free of charge on the NHS, under a strictly rationed basis of clinical need. This is known as the Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need (IOTN).
But what if you are an adult who wants to have orthodontic treatment? Maybe you missed out on standard braces as a child, or maybe you did have treatment only to be somewhat lax about wearing your retainer (as many teenagers are), experiencing adult relapse later in life. . .
An increasing number of patients are opting for private orthodontic treatment, both adults who have long dreamed of straighter teeth and teenagers who may not qualify for free orthodontics on the NHS but who never-the-less would benefit from treatment, not least because of the problems being embarrassed by misaligned teeth can cause during the sensitive and formative teenage years.
Capital Dental in Hampton offers a number of orthodontic treatments to private patients. These may be fixed appliances – braces – or removable aligners, which are much more discreet than the traditional metal devices on offer from the NHS.
It is worth remembering that the benefits of orthodontic treatment, at any age, are more than just aesthetic. Yes, it’s true that a straighter, perfectly aligned smile can have a positive effect on your self-confidence, and in turn a knock-on effect in both business and personal relationships. But there are further health benefits to be gained from teeth straightening.
Perhaps the most important benefit is that it is easier to keep your teeth clean. You may think you have an excellent home cleaning routine, so wonder why you’re developing the tell-tale signs of gum disease, or need an unexpected filling.
Misaligned teeth have more gaps in which plaque can accumulate. Because these areas are hard to reach at home, this plaque can cause oral health issues. Straightening your teeth is one of the best ways to ensure they stay healthy.
