The Right Bite, the Right White and Other Truths from Your Dentist


A lot of childhood dental and orthodontic problems don’t resolve themselves

Although decaying baby teeth will fall out eventually, a dentist should check the child’s overall oral health to ensure that the cavities don’t cause pain or becomes the root of an infection. When they have misaligned permanent teeth, on the other hand, these won’t self-correct, and they need orthodontic treatments to avoid complications or cosmetic concerns.

Braces don’t merely straighten your teeth

Straightening your teeth may be the main purpose of braces, but beyond that, braces also correct your bite. Overcrowded or crooked teeth and over or under bites make it easy for dirt and debris to get stuck in between teeth, for plaque to develop and for injuries to occur (e.g. teeth accidentally incising the lips, tongue and inner cheek). Correcting teeth alignment and bite problems can help lessen those issues.
