Teeth That Overlap Can Be Harder To Keep Healthy

When you think about why people seek out orthodontic work, you may focus on the cosmetic benefits that they can see from the appropriate care. You can certainly improve the way you look when you smile by undergoing this kind of treatment. With MTM clear aligners provided by your Prairie Village, KS dentist, you can see those impressive results with a more discreet appliance, so you can feel comfortable while your adjustment is taking place. What you might not realize is that there are more than just cosmetic benefits from orthodontic work. One reason people seek out an adjustment is to avoid the oral health complications that can come with crooked teeth. For instance, if you have teeth that inappropriately overlap, you can have a harder time cleaning these spaces, meaning your cavity risk is higher.

Can My Dental Alignment Really Affect My Cavity Risk?

When teeth overlap, it can become harder to remove bacteria and food debris that build up in the places where they meet. This means that the position of your teeth may be part of the reason you have had a harder time avoiding restorative dental work. While there are clear cosmetic benefits to an orthodontic adjustment, there are also benefits to your cavity defense, and your bite alignment, that can be important to recognize.
