We can’t control everything that happens in our lives. This can make the things we can control even more important to our long-term happiness.
One of those things is our smile. Few people are fortunate enough to have teeth that are naturally straight and aligned as well as they can be. On the other hand, we are lucky to live at a time when we have multiple options to create better smiles.
If you live in or near Visalia, CA, our team at Sequoia Dental Office has multiple ways to transform the appearance of your teeth. To learn about your options, call 559-608-3533 to schedule a consultation with one of our doctors. Make your 2021 the year that you take control of your teeth.
Do It For Your Health
We understand that many people want straight teeth because of the mental benefits of having an attractive smile. When your teeth are in line, you feel more confident about sharing your smile in person and in pictures. That can make it easier to go on a job interview, on a date, or to a social event (when those become normal again).
Coincidentally, recent polls suggest that a nice smile also helps people make a good first impression. Respondents reported that people with straight teeth were considered more confident, friendly, more intelligent, and more trustworthy.
From an oral health perspective, straight teeth have clear benefits as well. When your teeth are correctly aligned, you can brush and floss more effectively. This reduces your risk of having plaque buildup or food particles stuck in your teeth. That in turn makes you less likely to develop cavities, gum disease, and other problems. You still should brush and floss daily and you still need regular dental checkups, but the alignment of your teeth makes a big difference during your cleanings.
Correcting overbites, underbites, and other bite issues also helps. When you have a bite alignment issue, it can place added stress on your teeth. It also can greater wear and tear over time. By fixing your bite, you can minimize the wear and tear over the course of a lifetime.
