Why choose Auckland city orthodontics?
Many people choose orthodontics to improve their appearance and self-esteem, but there are more benefits to a straight smile than just aesthetics.
Orthodontics plays an important role in oral health. Malaligneded teeth can cause bite problems that make it difficult to eat certain foods, which could affect your diet. Crooked or overcrowded teeth can also be harder to brush and floss, which can lead to tooth decay and other dental disease. Prominent teeth that stick out may also be more prone to injury. St Heliers Dental Centre Auckland based orthodontic treatment can lower all these risks.
Abnormal alignment of the teeth can also cause teeth to wear down at a faster rate and may cause other problems such as teeth grinding (bruxism) or temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMD). Orthodontic treatment with braces or aligners can make your teeth perfectly straight and correct your bite, which will possibly eliminate any future jaw problems that you might have.
