If you have been thinking about getting your teeth straightened and yet it never quite makes it to the top of your to-do list, you might want to spend some time exploring the different kinds of braces in Coalville, and why having straight teeth is not only good for how you look, but for your oral and general health too.
Here at Ingrams Dental Practice, braces in Coalville are not only for correcting severe alignment issues, but also to help you feel as confident as possible about your smile.
Why have a great smile?
Yes, you can muddle through life with a set of moderately dodgy gnashers, but for most people there will always be an underlying self-consciousness about their teeth not looking great. You may find yourself keeping your mouth closed when you smile, or talking and laughing with your hand over your face. You may even avoid eye contact with others. All this adds up to subtle but unmissable body language signals. We are hard-wired to notice how much people smile and then use this information to interpret whether they are a friend or foe. It’s primeval, but powerful stuff.
So, even though your wonky teeth may not stop you eating (yet), they may stop you making instant contacts and gliding through life making the most of one of your most important non-verbal tools of communication.
Health-wise, crooked teeth are much more likely to harbour plaque, simply because it’s harder to brush and floss away. Plaque gives off acid, which causes tooth decay and gum disease, the latter of which has been linked to heart disease and other systemic illnesses.
