Turke Orthodontics is Tampa and Brandon, FL’s favorite orthodontist for adult braces and orthodontics. A beautiful, healthy smile can have a big impact on your life. A nice smile with straight teeth will improve how others perceive you and how you perceive yourself. People with beautiful smiles traditionally demonstrate high levels of confidence, self-esteem, and approachability.
Appearance is the number-one reason most people choose to straighten their teeth, but did you realize that there are myriad health benefits that also come from straightened teeth? Individuals with straight teeth are less likely to have cavities, problems with discoloration, and uneven wear and fractured teeth. Poor alignment of the teeth may lead to teeth being ground down and chipping. Adult braces and orthodontics is your first step towards that beautiful and healthy smile!
According to an AAO Survey, there has been a steady increase in the number of adult orthodontic cases started each year since 2010. Our focus throughout your time with adult braces and orthodontics is not only straightening your teeth, but also correcting your bite. A good bite enables you to bite and chew food properly, which aids in digestion and the ability of the body to receive proper nutrition. A misaligned jaw can lead to migraines and speech impediments.
A poor bite can also lead to periodontal disease, because it is difficult to brush and floss adequately when the teeth are not properly aligned. Periodontal disease is evidenced by gum redness or bleeding while brushing and/or flossing your teeth. It can lead to bad breath, soft tissue damage, gum disease, tooth loss, and even bone loss. Severe periodontal infection caused by bacteria forming underneath the gum has been associated with an increased risk for atherosclerosis, coronary disease, strokes, complications with diabetes, adverse pregnancy outcomes, and respiratory diseases. Studies show that individuals who properly brush and floss every day are likely to live longer.
