Words of Wisdom No. 7 – Stay fresh
A beautiful smile paired with fresh breath is perhaps the strongest tool a person can possess regarding social interactions. Both of these aspects combined can disarm people and make them feel like they can trust or like you.
The problem is that some people have orthodontic issues like misaligned teeth. Now, what some people do not know is that issues like misaligned teeth can also make it harder to keep your breath fresh. The reason is simply because bacteria and food can get stuck in the creases of your teeth, which are perfect hiding places.
Bad breath is really just one of the issues that you have to worry about. Orthodontic issues can also affect you in some of the following ways:
- You might develop speech issues
- Bacteria can lead to plaque or tartar
- Unattended plaque or tartar can lead to gum disease
- Bacteria can cause cavities
- Mouth injuries or dental cracks are more likely with misaligned teeth
Of course, these are just some of the problems that Dr. Papandreas and his team of specialists are here to help with. There are a number of ways that the good people at Dr. Papandreas Orthodontics deal with malocclusion. For one, braces might be recommended. Braces are orthodontic devices that should help correct even the most severe of misalignments.
Those with less severe orthodontic problems may also choose to deal with the problem using invisalign. Invisalign uses aligners that can be removed, unlike braces that remain on the teeth for the entire process. These aligners are also practically invisible, which is one reason why some opt for this type of treatment.
