Let’s make sure your teeth are straight with orthodontics Marylebone
In some cases, you might not be aware that you or your children need orthodontics Marylebone to adjust the position of your teeth. It isn’t only a matter for crooked, cramped or gapped teeth, but we work on repositioning how the jaw is set in the mouth which can also have a huge impact on the wellbeing of your entire body.
If your jaw is misaligned, you will suffer from an incorrect bite, which can lead to devastating consequences over time if it is not seen to and corrected swiftly. Such issues include an inability to chew or even speak properly, headaches, neck pain, shoulder pain and so forth.
Most children, at around the age 7, will see an orthodontics Marylebone professional in order to establish whether braces are needed to realign their teeth or jaw. In some cases in the past, professionals deemed that misalignment was not severe enough to warrant braces or perhaps parents of these children could not afford the treatment necessary. In other cases, there simply wasn’t an orthodontics Marylebone professional available at the time necessary and so as a result, more adults are presenting with misalignments that need treating.
We believe that everyone needs to feel confident and comfortable with their smile and therefore tooth realignment is a common practice. Unfortunately, teeth will never straighten naturally over time, they will actually become more twisted, so if you never had braces when you were younger but perhaps feel like you need them now as your smile is less than perfect, then there is no time like the present to get this done.
Why should I straighten my teeth?
There are many reasons that go beyond cosmetic to encourage you to straighten your teeth. We will discuss here the impact on your emotional wellbeing because this is forefront in many individual’s thoughts when it comes to undergoing the process of teeth straightening.
Having the end goal of having a more attractive and healthier smile is something that motivates individuals to keep positive throughout the journey and should you opt for a removable device, such as Invisalign, you will need to remain motivated should you wish to see the results that are available to you.
There are many health implications that will occur should you not realign your teeth and jaw. We have mentioned the impact of having an incorrect bite, which was pain and even the inability to eat and speak correctly, but if it is more of a cosmetic issue with your teeth, you should know that your health is being compromised in this situation as well.
Crooked and cramped teeth generally present with more plaque and tartar, simply because areas of your mouth where your teeth cross are harder to reach when brushing. The build-up of food debris and bacteria can cause bad breath and if it is not dealt with routinely through professional cleaning, can result in cavities and eventual tooth loss.
Maintaining a healthy smile is a different journey for everyone. By straightening your teeth, you can enjoy a smile that is easier to care for, resulting in you having more time enjoying your smile.
