Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment
Portland, OR

Person holding a clear Invisalign aligner tray for orthodontic treatment at West End Dental in Downtown Portland, OregonThe alignment of your teeth and jaws is important. If you are dealing with one, or more, of several different orthodontic issues, you may be faced with not only aesthetic issues but oral health issues as well. Orthodontic treatment, including traditional braces] or Invisalign, can resolve these issues, greatly improving your quality of life. West End Dental can provide you with the orthodontic treatment you need. However, just what exactly are the benefits of undergoing treatment?

Improving Your Smile and Facial Aesthetics

One of the most noticeable issues associated with crooked teeth is an imperfect smile. Alignment issues can also affect your facial aesthetics. Both of these issues can significantly impact your confidence. When your smile is less than perfect, it can affect what others think of you. You may try to hide your smile behind your hand or keep your lips tight. While these actions might seem insignificant, they can also speak volumes, affecting the impressions you leave. With orthodontic treatment, the alignment of your teeth and jaws are corrected, greatly improving the quality of your smile, your facial aesthetics, and boosting your confidence.

Decreased Risk of Cavities and Gum Disease

Crooked teeth are more difficult to effectively clean, providing bacteria and plaque ideal hiding places. If you are unable to properly clean your teeth, you are more vulnerable to developing oral health issues like cavities and gum disease. Correcting alignment issues eliminates hiding places, making your teeth much easier to brush and floss.

Alleviation of Jaw Pain

Crooked teeth and poorly aligned jaws can put excessive pressure on your jaws and your temporomandibular joints. This can lead to significant pain in these regions. This pain can become so severe that it can make eating and speak incredibly difficult. With orthodontic treatment, we can correct your bite so that pressures are even. This helps to alleviate jaw and TMJ pain, which can greatly restore your quality of life.

Improving Digestion and Overall Health

Chewing is the first stage of digestion. When you chew, you break down the foods you eat so that your body can easily absorb the nutrients later in the digestive process. Poorly aligned teeth can make it difficult to effectively chew your food. Improper chewing affects your digestion. Your body cannot fully absorb the nutrients that what you eat has to offer. As a result, your overall nutrition can suffer. By correcting your alignment issues, you can properly chew your food so that your body can easily digest it and absorb its nutrients. With improved digestion, your overall health can be improved.

Reduced Risk for Dental Trauma

While dental trauma can affect anyone, your risk is greatly improved when your teeth or jaws are misaligned. A fall, a sports injury, or other issues can lead to chipped or cracked teeth. Correcting your alignment issues helps to reduce this risk, protecting your teeth and jaws from serious harm.
