Along with the social and mental wellbeing benefits that come from wearing braces in Sutton Coldfield, there are also physical pluses.
Even mildly misaligned teeth can affect the rest of the body. When the teeth line up well, the forces created by chewing are evenly distributed along the jawbone.
When they don’t, a few teeth take the brunt of chewing. This can be transmitted down into the jaw joint, the neck, head and shoulders, creating TMJ disorders, aches and even migraines. The teeth can even crumble away from overuse. Get your teeth lined up and all these problems can be solved.
Another big plus is that teeth that line up well are easier to keep clean, as it is so much easier for toothbrushes to get at the plaque. This reduces the chances of decay and gum disease and means your teeth could be around for much longer, maybe even for life.
