One of the big pluses of getting braces in Milton Keynes, besides, of course, that your smile will look so much better, is that your teeth will be easier to keep clean.
It’s all about the plaque
Cleaning your teeth is all about getting rid of plaque, which never stops building up on the surfaces of the teeth. It’s easy enough to remove from the flat parts, but harder around the gumline and in any nooks and crannies created by teeth crossing over each other and leaning in or out.
And if you can’t get at the plaque, you can’t stop it giving off acids that eat away at the enamel to cause tooth decay and also irritate and inflame the gums before attacking the tooth roots and jawbone underneath them.
Oral hygiene is so much easier when teeth line up properly. And so, if you need more reasons that just looking fabulous to allow yourself to invest in teeth straightening treatments with us at Northlight Dental, remember that straight teeth tend to last a lot longer than crooked teeth.
In a way, it’s a choice between investing in your oral health now, or putting it off till later in life, when you won’t be investing in braces in Milton Keynes but in ways to replace lost teeth, such as dental implants.
So why not invest now, and get the double benefit of teeth that you can easily keep clean and also look wonderful?
Confidence boosting braces in Milton Keynes
As well as boosting your oral hygiene levels, straight teeth will also boost your confidence. You may not even be aware of how your confidence can be affected by wonky teeth if you have been living with them your entire life. So, if you are trying to decide what to do, why not watch yourself throughout the day for a little while. Notice how often you’d like to smile and don’t let yourself. How you don’t smile at strangers. How you avoid being the centre of attention. How you perhaps hold your hand over your mouth.
Then, if you’re convinced you could do with a boost, book yourself a consultation for braces in Milton Keynes with Northlight Dental.
