Braces are used to align teeth in case of malalignment. There are many benefits of getting braces done for your teeth but let’s discuss some of the uncommon health benefits of braces that you probably weren’t aware of.
The best orthodontists in Mumbai will tell you that health benefits of braces are as follows-
BRACES HELP WITH SPEECH IMPROVEMENT
Alignment of your teeth also has an impact on the way words sound, did you know that?
In case teeth are not in a proper arch form some patients may experience a hard time pronouncing certain words. Once the patient undergoes braces treatment the pronunciation of many words can drastically improve. A frequently used substitute for braces is also aligners, which are transparent therefore does not alter aesthetics at all.
IT GIVES YOU A BETTER AND MORE BALANCED BITE
When your teeth don’t fit on each other perfectly there may be some difficulty in chewing your food. Since the way your upper and lower teeth come together are not in harmonious relationship it is very likely to cause fracture of teeth plus injury to the joint present between jaw and the skull, called the temporomandibular joint.
BRACES PREVENT INJURY
In case of very proclined teeth or upper jaw the chances of injury to your front teeth are very high. Nobody likes broken or chipped teeth as they will affect the overall aesthetics of your smile. Fractured teeth may tend to get sensitive or even discolored, both of which will require treatment. A simple filling, veneer treatment or root canal treatment may be required to correct the fractured tooth.
BRACES AID IN BETTER DIGESTION (IMPROVED CHEWING)
In case of an imbalanced bite the chewing efficiency is much less as compared to straight and aligned teeth. The food bolus needs to be properly chewed and digested for a good overall health. When food bolus is broken down into tiny bits it aids the stomach for further digestion and absorption. The best orthodontists in Mumbai will tell you that for better chewing efficiency a good alignment of teeth is important.
BRACES PREVENT CAVITIES
Decay and cavities are a common problem in case there is food lodgement in your teeth. Usually there is more food lodgement observed by the top orthodontists in Mumbai in case of malaligned teeth. Once there is change in the alignment, you will notice less food stuck between your teeth, and also much easier for maintenance. Brushing and flossing is also much easier once the teeth have a better alignment. Aligners can also be used instead of braces for aligning teeth.
THEY PREVENT GUM DISEASE
Once you get braces treatment done there is better alignment of your teeth which will ensure that the surrounding tooth structure made of bone and gums will stay healthy. Even spacing of your teeth will ensure that minimum food is lodged in between your teeth.
There are many types of orthodontic braces like Metal, Ceramic, lingual braces, etc. Metal braces are metallic colored, while ceramic braces are whitish in color which look more aesthetic. Another teeth alignment option is Aligners which work similarly, give similar results but look more aesthetic as they are transparent color.
