A lot of folks think that the only benefit of having straight teeth is the confidence it provides. However, the American Dental Association confirms that straightening your teeth can have a positive impact on your overall dental health as well. In this blog post, we will explain the health benefits of straight teeth.

  1. Healthier teeth and gums – Teeth that are crowded or too widely spaced can open the door for swollen, red gums. Down the road, this can lead to periodontal disease and potential tooth loss. It’s important to know that when teeth align the way they should, it helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth. This enables the strongest, healthiest defense against periodontitis. That’s where ClearCorrect from Mesquite Dental & Implant Center comes into play. The comfortable and clear aligners gently and gradually begin to move your teeth into the proper position without brackets and wires. In less than two years, you will have the straight teeth you’ve always wanted.
  2. Easier cleaning – If you ever had braces as a kid, you probably remember the countless times where food would get trapped in the brackets and wires. All that nasty plaque buildup can result in eventual tooth decay. That doesn’t have to be the case with ClearCorrect, though. These invisible braces are removable and convenient. Best of all, there are no adjustment visits that you have to work into your busy schedule.
  3. Overall health – Teeth and gums say a lot about overall health. Keep in mind that tooth decay and gum disease are caused by bacteria. Should these conditions go untreated, you can experience mouth sores, tender or bleeding gums, bad breath, and possible tooth loss. What’s even more serious is that poor oral health has been linked to heart disease, stroke, pneumonia, and diabetes. With ClearCorrect, oral hygiene is made easier. Plus, correctly aligned teeth can fix an improper bite, speech or chewing difficulties, jaw problems, and increased wear on tooth enamel.
