1)Better digestion: Digestion begins in the mouth with our teeth grinding the food and the release of saliva that contains enzymes that begin to break down the food. Teeth that do not have good occlusion do not allow proper grinding of food, which will prolong the digestion process.
2)Better speech: The tip of the tongue collides perfectly with the teeth to allow for excellent enunciation. If your teeth are misaligned, your enunciation is likely to be affected.
3)Improved overall health: Periodontal disease, which is a direct consequence of crooked teeth, can lead to systemic problems. These include high blood pressure, heart disease and dementia.
4)Decreased periodontal disease and bone loss: If teeth are aligned, it is easier to sanitize them properly, which will not only prevent cavities, but also periodontal disease and bone loss.
5)Better space for implants: If we are missing a tooth, the surrounding teeth will lean into the missing space. Straight teeth allow the dentist to maintain the space adequately without losing the integrity of the arch and thus have room to place an implant to restore the missing tooth.
6)Virtually eliminates the risk of temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJD), loss of vertical dimension.
