The Benefits of Straight Teeth

At Eastern Virginia Orthodontics, we're proud to help patients throughout Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and Chesapeake, VA achieve beautiful, healthy smiles through quality orthodontic treatment. The aesthetic improvements of straighter teeth are obvious to anyone, but the truth is, achieving a new smile carries a host of benefits that go far beyond appearance. If you're considering straightening your teeth through braces or Invisalign, there's never been a better time to do it – and when you finally finish treatment, you'll get to enjoy a wide range of benefits.

How Straighter Improve Mental & Physical Health

The most obvious benefit of having straighter teeth is the aesthetic improvement to your smile, but even this carries deeper connotations. The true benefit of a beautiful smile is that you're proud to show it off, and that's something that makes everything from professional presentations to social events easier. Having a beautiful, healthy smile provides a boost in confidence, happiness, and self-esteem that radiates through every area of your personal and professional life, bringing you benefits for years to come.

In addition to the psychological benefits, there are physical health benefits to straight teeth, as well. It turns out that the nooks and crannies of crooked teeth make the perfect hiding places for bacteria and plaque, and it's much harder to effectively clean crooked teeth. Straightening your teeth minimizes those hiding places and makes it easier to comprehensively, effectively clean your teeth, which helps lower your risk for dental decay and cavities. Straightening your teeth doesn't just beautify your smile – it helps protect your teeth from decay for the rest of your life
