Straightening your teeth with the help of our dentist

Straightening your teeth is a great way of enhancing your smile. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your smile you need to speak to our dentist Walkerston and find out about the different types of braces that are available here at Walkerston Dental. By straightening your teeth, not only will you have a more beautiful smile, but you will also be able to enjoy better dental health. This is because crooked and wonky teeth are difficult to look after. You will find that despite maintaining excellent dental hygiene, your teeth are more likely to develop plaque and tartar. If plaque and tartar develop on your teeth then the bacteria that grow on the surface of your teeth release acids and toxins which can weaken your teeth and gums and make them more susceptible to tooth decay and gum disease. It is more difficult to brush away food particles and bacteria from your teeth and it is difficult to floss effectively. This is why more plaque and tartar build up on uneven teeth than they do on straighter teeth. Straighter teeth are easier to brush and easier to floss. There is less plaque and tartar on straighter teeth, which means they are less likely to develop tooth decay or gum disease. Speak to our dentist Walkerston and find out if teeth straightening is suitable for you.
