Dental Braces
Dentist Tempe, AZ


Asian boy smiling with braces done by A Great Smile Arizona in Tempe, AZIf your teeth are slightly crooked and don't really bother you aesthetically, you may be thinking that there is no real reason for you to pursue orthodontic treatment. What many people don't realize is that there are many benefits of orthodontic treatment that extend well beyond a straight smile. By learning about them, you can make an informed decision about whether orthodontic treatment is right for you.

Jaw Problems


Orthodontic treatment is a good way to fix your bite, allowing your braces treatments to finish faster. Misaligned teeth cause stress on your jaw, so by taking measures to straighten your jaw and bite in addition to just the teeth, you can avoid TMJ issues and other problems.

Reduced Risk of Oral Disease


When you straighten your teeth, gaps and crevices that can hide harmful bacteria are reduced. When these hiding places are closed up, there will be fewer areas for food to accumulate and build up, which can result in gum disease and the formation of cavities. This is especially important when you consider all of the health problems that are associated with oral health issues. For example, researchers have found connections to high blood sugar, heart disease, and preterm deliveries with people living with gum disease.

Injury Prevention


If you have protruding front teeth, you could be at an increased risk of suffering from injuries. Failing to correct this problem, especially in children, can be hazardous. Kids who participate in high-contact activities like sports are at an especially heightened risk.
