Orthodontic treatment is extremely beneficial, especially because it aligns your crooked, unattractive smile. However, some people have a hard time taking the first step in their orthodontic journey. If you could be considered as one of these people, our Smiley Dental Mesquite team is happy to tell you why a straight smile is much better than a crooked one. A straight smile can:

Help you chew better – Crooked teeth make chewing, talking, and even singing more difficult than necessary. However, once you align your smile, you will finally have the ability to do these three tasks easily. Orthodontic treatment will also help you align your bite, which will make chewing even easier.

Improve your oral health – Yes, having straight teeth not only improves your smile’s appearance, but it also improves your smile’s health. A crooked smile tends to harbor plaque and bacteria in the hard-to-clean places where your teeth are uneven. If these areas are not frequently cleaned, there is a high chance that you could suffer from tooth decay and gum disease. This is why having a straight smile is so beneficial.

Boost your self-esteem – The best part about orthodontic treatment is that it finally gives you the smile of your dreams. Once your teeth are aligned, your self-esteem will be boosted and you will no longer feel ashamed or embarrassed to talk, sing, laugh, or show your teeth.

If you’ve finally decided to align your smile because of the many benefits of orthodontic treatment, we encourage you to call 972.388.1138 today and schedule an appointment with your orthodontist, Dr. Lynh Pham! The sooner you come into our office, the sooner you’ll finally have the smile of your dreams.
