The advantages of wearing braces go beyond simple aesthetics—yes, braces will straighten your teeth and help give you a more attractive, confident smile, but the benefits don’t stop there. Teeth that have been straightened by braces are easier to clean, which leads to better dental health. This is especially beneficial for teeth that may have been difficult to brush or floss before braces.
Braces can also prevent painful jaw problems such as temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ), which can cause long-lasting severe pain, facial swelling, difficulty chewing, toothaches, and headaches. To learn more about the benefits of braces, watch this helpful video.
