Braces can be costly, they need to be worn for a lengthy period of time and can sometimes cause discomfort. However, there are many benefits from wearing braces whether it is to correct the position of your teeth or for cosmetic purposes. This presentation will go through some of the benefits of wearing braces.

Studies have found that there is an increase in social well-being within the first six months of wearing braces. Many feel that with braces, there is an improvement in appearance, they are more able to smile and they feel better about their image. There is not need to hide your mouth when you smile or laugh!
  4. 4. Improve Your Oral Hygiene It’s easier for food and other particles to be stuck in teeth that are overcrowded of crooked. It is in these crevices that bacteria grow. Due to the inability to reach them through regular brushing and flossing, bacteria grow in these spots, leading to cavities and tooth decay. Getting straight teeth through braces makes it easier to properly clean your teeth and prevent dental problems like tooth decay and cavities.

Improper chewing means that the rest of your digestive system has to put in the estra work to make sure your food is digested properly. The more your digestive system works, the quicker it declines and this can lead to many different illnesses including gastrointestinal problems. By correcting your teeth, you can stop the aging of your digestive system.
  7. 7. Improve Speech A speech impediment can result from crooked and misaligned teeth. This causes speech to be distorted. For example, a gap in the teeth can cause a lisp.

With braces, many people have increased their confidence and thus their quality of life. They are able to smile and laugh without covering their teeth and express themselves more. Braces are beneficial to physical and psychological health in the long run.
