Improve Your Dental Health with Orthodontics in Kent
Are you aware that orthodontic treatment could help to improve your oral health? There is a common misconception that orthodontic treatment only provides cosmetic improvements when in fact the oral health benefits can be very worthwhile. Not only will you end up with a beautifully straight smile, but also one that is healthier, and that’s surely worth considering.
Straighter Teeth Are Healthier Teeth
If your teeth are quite crooked or are overcrowded then you probably find it difficult to brush and floss properly. No matter how hard you try it can be very tricky to reach into all the nooks and crannies in your mouth, and near impossible to thread floss in between crowded teeth. The end result is an increased risk of tooth decay, as it’s essential to clean the contact areas between each tooth every day. These contact areas can easily trap food particles and plaque bacteria, increasing the risk of cavities.
In contrast, if your teeth are nicely spaced and are straight then you’ll find it much easier to brush thoroughly, and flossing will be a cinch. Your teeth will be healthier, and may even appear a little brighter as all the excess food and plaque will have been removed.
Enjoy Better Gum Health
Just as importantly having straighter teeth will improve the health of your gums. Gum disease can often begin developing in the contact areas in between your teeth, and one of the earliest signs that it might be developing is noticing your gums bleed when you try to floss. Healthy gums should be strong and should fit snugly around the teeth, and good gum health is relatively easy to achieve when your teeth are straighter.
Orthodontic Treatment Ensures Your Teeth Meet Together Properly
Wearing a brace means that your teeth will meet together properly at the end of treatment. This is extremely important for your oral health, as it will help reduce the wear and tear on your teeth. Teeth that are in malocclusion or which don’t meet together properly can wear unevenly, something that can lead to a significant amount of tooth structure being worn away. If this occurs then the teeth will need crowning to restore them to normal function. In addition malocclusion can sometimes place stress on the muscles and joints responsible for moving your jaw.

“I came to see Rik as I was really unhappy with my smile, I was missing teeth and also had broken teeth which was really affecting my chewing and confidence. I had dental implant treatment and would really recommend
“ The work I’ve had done has literally changed my life. I used to be very nervous but I love coming here. It was very comfortable and easy treatment coming from someone like me who was a phobic. Thank- you Rik and the team at Parrock Dental ”
I came to see Rik to have dental implants, I also needed a bone graft procedure all of which I was very nervous about. Rik was very sincere. I had a bone graft, dental implants and veneers. I am 100% happy with the result and would sincerely recommend Rik to everyone!
“I came here as my son recommended Parrock Dental, and my teeth were badly worn at the front and I needed dental implants at the rear to replace missing teeth. Overall I’ve been very please, it’s given me a lot more confidence with my smile, and chewing is now really good.”
