Nice teeth can make for a great smile, but there are many other reasons for correcting crooked or misaligned teeth.
Over time misaligned teeth wear unevenly, and may eventually weaken and fall out. Other problems associated with misaligned teeth include headaches, jaw pain, excessive clenching and grinding, snoring, and sleep apnea.
Straight teeth allow for proper oral hygiene by providing easier access to the areas between the gums and reduces the accumulation of tartar on the teeth, thereby reducing the total bacterial count in the mouth. It has been researched that people with gum disease are more likely to suffer from coronary artery disease. The bacteria that causes gum disease can trigger the release of inflammation-causing chemicals in the blood, attaching to plaque in the coronary arteries, and obstructing normal blood flow.
94% of people surveyed in a recent study by Harris Interactive said that a smile is the first thing they notice when meeting someone.
75% of adults believe that an attractive smile is important for succeeding at the workplace.
Over 33% of people polled agree that bad teeth overshadow the rest of a person’s appearance.
86% think people with good teeth are more attractive to the opposite sex!
It is estimated that 75 – 80% of adult patients are now getting their teeth straightened for the first time. Most adults want less visible options and INVISALIGN is the latest alternative to conventional braces. Adults, adolescents and now children can be treated with a series of clear aligners that straighten the teeth gradually until the intended results are achieved. So, whether you are a teenager coming into your own in high school, a young executive striving to establish your position in the business world, a mother ready to finally do some self-care, or a child standing on the threshold of a lifetime… A beautiful smile translates into health, invites communication, and can open the doors to success and fulfillment.
At Bhatia Orthodontics we have helped thousands create the smile they want. I am also proud of the fact that I am an ELITE PROVIDER for INVISALIGN, a distinction given to only 1% of Orthodontic Practices in the nation. I believe that a warm smile is the universal language of kindness and hence our credo “We build Kindness… One smile at a time!”
