The importance of straightening teeth with our dentist in Canary Wharf


Straightening teeth is important for many different reasons. A straight smile helps promote healthy teeth and healthy gums. If you suffer from crooked or wonky teeth, you will likely have more plaque and tartar in your mouth, and this is harmful to your dental health.

Tooth decay and gum disease

Plaque is a sticky substance that forms on your teeth when bacteria and food particles mix with the saliva in your mouth. Bacteria in the plaque secrete acids, which, over time, damage the enamel of your teeth and result in the formation of cavities or small holes in your teeth. Over time these holes become bigger and result in tooth decay. If addressed early on, tooth decay can be treated successfully, but if you avoid our dentist in Canary Wharf, then tooth decay can cause irreversible damage to your tooth, and you may require an extraction or the tooth may fall out by itself. If you straighten your teeth with our dentist in Canary Wharf, you can brush your teeth easily and more effectively, removing plaque, bacteria and food particles and reducing your risk of tooth decay.

Crooked and wonky teeth also have a detrimental impact on your gum health. Plaque and bacteria accumulate along and under the gum line, and this can lead to gum disease or even periodontal disease. Gum disease can be treated, whilst periodontal disease can have irreversible effects on your dental health. Periodontal disease is one of the main causes of tooth loss in adults, so you must speak to a dentist in Canary Wharf and talk about straightening your teeth to help improve the health of your teeth and gums.

Bite disorders

Straightening your teeth can also aid in the treatment of bite disorders. By managing bite disorders, you can avoid severe complications in the future. Bite disorders can result in head and neck pain, increase wear and tear of your teeth and heighten your chances of decay and disease. Straightening your teeth can help correct overbites, underbites and crossbites.
