4 Benefits of a Straight Smile in San Antonio

Published on July 15, 2019
The mission at Bunn Orthodontic Group is to create a positive influence in the facial esthetics, personality, and health of our patients. We are committed to creating the most beautiful smiles in our San Antonio community. While a beautiful smile is the first thing you think of when it comes to hearing the words, “orthodontist” “braces” or “Invisalign” - orthodontic treatment is so much more than a beautiful smile. It affects your overall health, physically and mentally.

Here are four incredible benefits of having a straight smile, that goes beyond a beautiful smile.

1 - A Healthy Bite: 
Orthodontic treatment aims to ensure your bite is correctly in place, that your upper and lower teeth fit perfectly together.  A bad bite is called a “malocclusion,” which is the imperfect positioning of your teeth and jaws. Your bite is essential for things we often do not think about such as helping us speak correctly, the way we eat our food and the health of our gums.

2. Decreases Risk of Tooth Injury:
Teeth that are crowded together, are more at risk to be broken in an accident such as sports injuries or a fall. April was National Facial Protection Month, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t remind our patients to wear mouthguards. Whether your son or daughter is playing sports, a mouthguard will help their teeth be protected, regardless of their orthodontic treatment.

3. Improved Oral Hygiene: 
A straight smile improves your oral hygiene. Your teeth become easier to clean. Crowded teeth are harder to floss, which leads to plaque buildup and tooth decay. Plaque buildup and lack of an effective oral hygiene routine can lead to bacteria, bleeding gums and tooth loss.

4. Improves Self Esteem / Happier: 
An added health benefit of a straight smile is towards our mental health. It’s no secret the end result of your orthodontic treatment is a beautiful smile. Like our mission statement states, our mission is to create a positive influence in the personality of our patients. We believe that a smile will help anyone smile with confidence, to grow confidently in all areas of their lives.
