If you think having cosmetic dental treatment is all about vanity then you might be surprised to learn that there are some astonishing health benefits too!

1) Straighter teeth are easier to clean than crooked teeth

A straight set of teeth means that there will be less hard-to-reach areas in your mouth so you’ll be much more efficient when it comes to brushing them compared to crowded teeth, which can have lots of hidden areas for food debris to remain and start causing problem. Flossing also works better on teeth that are properly spaced out.

2) Better health for the rest of your mouth

Teeth which are correctly aligned ensure proper bite function. Ideally, your top and bottom teeth should line up with each other to provide the most efficient biting and chewing function without causing excessive wear. When you get your teeth straightened via a treatment like Six Month Smiles you can cut down on the amount of stress your teeth experience. This leads to a longer and healthier lifespan for your teeth, also helping to alleviate some forms of chronic jaw pain linked to having a misaligned bite.

3) Smiling makes you and others feel better

We all like to be greeted by someone smiling and we also love to do some ourselves. It’s a good kind of contagious and can light up an otherwise dull day. And with Invisalign braces there’ll be absolutely no impact on your smiling abilities during teeth straightening treatment.

4) Smiling helps you to laugh and relieve stress

When you smile it’s as if all your troubles have been washed away, and chances are you’ll then have something to laugh about too. This is a great way to relieve stress because your body releases endorphins, brain chemicals known as neurotransmitters, which make us feel happy and are a natural means of relieving stress and pain. But if missing teeth are stressing you out we can give you a helping hand with implants for a set of teeth that demand lots and lots of smiling.

5) Is there anything smiling can’t do?

You may think we’re having you on with this last one, but a good laugh has been found to be beneficial to the lungs, also boosting immunity and even helping us to burn off calories. It all sounds too good to be true, but just think about how much better you feel when you smile and you’ll see it’s not all gobbledegook.
