Orthodontics is more than just a great smile!
Improve Overall Health With Orthodontics
For example, you have probably noticed that some children are more susceptible to allergens or even harmful bacteria. Some of these children grow up thinking that they are a little more sensitive than others, but that is not always the case. It is possible that some of these children and people might just be mouth breathers. These breathers make it impossible for the nose to filter out allergens and trap bacteria before entering the body. This issue also makes it possible for the tongue to add pressure to the jaw. This elongated pressure may intervene with the natural growth of the jaw, which is one reason why some people have a misaligned jaw.
Many issues can be taken care of by visiting Dr. RJ Jackson, an Austin Orthodontic Specialist, including reducing the risk of cavities. Misaligned teeth make it easier for harmful bacteria to hide in the mouth and teeth, and this could give way to cavities or even gum disease.
What Issues can Orthodontics Deal With?
- Sleep issues, like insomnia or sleep apnea
- Weight gain

- Mouth breathing issues
- Mild to acute head and neck pain

So, sure, you will have a social media ready smile, but that glorious side-effect is minuscule compared to some of the other benefits associated with this treatment.
