Benefits of having straight teeth



There’s more to having straight teeth than just looking good. People who have straight teeth are perceived as being happier, wealthier, and more attractive, compared to people with crooked teeth. In fact, having straight teeth can boost your confidence. However, what this article will focus on are the main health benefits of having straight teeth.

Straight teeth are easier to clean

It is hard to clean crooked teeth. It is also difficult to get into the nooks and crannies between crowded teeth. This makes brushing and flossing very difficult. Sometimes, food particles may be trapped by overlapping teeth, resulting in the buildup of plaque and a high risk of tooth decay. With straight teeth, you can brush and floss with ease, thus reducing the incidence of plaque.

Reduces cavities

Many people encounter difficulty brushing or flossing crooked teeth. And, an inability to clean your teeth increases your vulnerability to cavities. That means extra hours at the dentist. When you straighten your teeth, you’ll be able to save more money over time because you don’t have to worry about cavities.

Crooked teeth cause more headaches

Neck pain and headaches are very common among people with crooked teeth. Why? Because crooked teeth place a great deal of stress on the bone structure supporting the teeth, as well as the gums. Misalignment of the jaws, which can be addressed by orthodontic treatment, also contributes to headaches as well as neck or facial pains.

Your speech gets clearer

Do you know that crooked teeth increase a person’s chances of having speech problems? Yes, it does. With crooked teeth, you may be on your way to having speech impediments like lisps. These speech impediments may be caused by the crooked teeth themselves, or even by clear aligners and other mechanisms designed to help you cope with imperfect dentition. Also, crooked teeth may result in early loss of your teeth which in turn causes more problems with speech.

Your ability to speak clearly and in a concise manner will boost your self-esteem and confidence, and help you advance faster in your career, education, and other endeavors.

It is easy to breathe with straight teeth

Breathing? Strange, isn’t it? What’s the relationship between a straight tooth and a straight smile? Well, it’s about the way our teeth fit together. If you can’t close your jaws well when resting, then odds are that you’ll breathe more often from your mouth. Breathing from your mouth has many negative impacts, ranging from dry gum (which triggers tooth decay and gum disease) to halitosis (bad breath), difficulty focusing, and low energy levels.

Improves digestion

With a set of straight teeth, you can chew your food better. And proper chewing eases the digestion of the food. This will promote the action of the bacteria in your stomach and prevent indigestion. Food that is thoroughly chewed is easily digested by your digestive system and causes very little damage over time.

Prevents jaw strain

Crooked teeth can cause a misalignment of your jaw, and jaw misalignment can result in disorders of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). Needless to say, that’s a painful one. With straight teeth, these disorders can be prevented.

When you have problems with your temporomandibular joint, you may experience pain in the upper part of your body as well, so your best bet is to avoid the problem. TMJ disorders can cause ear problems, headaches, dizziness, and related disorders. If your goal is to stay pain-free, then you should get straighter teeth.

Boosts self confidence

So many people experience some form of insecurity because of their misaligned or crooked teeth. Straightening your teeth will boost your confidence and self-esteem, which in turn improves your physical and mental health.


People with low self-esteem usually experience mental problems like anxiety and depression which can complicate already existing health problems.
