Beverly Hills, CA – Orthodontists provide a number of benefits for the health of your teeth and smile. However, this isn’t only about teeth and a dental service. In fact, many patients who choose to have orthodontic work done are surprised by the diverse health benefits that this option can provide for total body health and wellness.
Aligning Your Teeth, Improving Your Body
Making sure your teeth are aligned correctly doesn’t just have aesthetic benefits. When you have your teeth straightened, you can chew and speak more easily, which keeps your teeth healthier in the long run. In addition, gum disease can be more easily prevented when your teeth are aligned because they are easier to brush and floss.
Gum disease is linked to a number of serious conditions, from diabetes to heart disease. Those who are gum-disease-free will often be healthier than those who are not, so remember that the alignment of your teeth does have some bearing on the health of your body.
Healthier Teeth, Sharper Minds
Individuals who have healthy teeth don’t just see these effects in their bodies. Strong and healthy teeth actually make for sharper minds as well, helping to protect the memories of older individuals down the line. Those who suffer from gingivitis and other oral issues have actually been scientifically proven to have more trouble with memory than those with healthier mouths.
In addition, individuals who suffer from mood disorders, eating disorders, and other mental illnesses often have oral health issues as well. The cause and effect can sometimes be reversed, but in many cases, oral health is necessary for mental health and vice-versa.
Oral Health, Confidence Boost
People whose mouths are healthier often have less anxiety about their teeth and their appearance. They will feel confident and good looking, which helps with their overall mental health and interactions with others. While keeping a mouth healthy is necessary to one’s overall wellness, making sure teeth are straight and attractive affects a person’s general feelings about their appearance too.
But don’t take our word for it. Just ask around to find out how many people use retainers or other orthodontic tools, and we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised.
