The Benefits of Orthodontics

Leesburg Orthodontics is an integral part of dental care for both children and adults. It not only improves your smile, but it can also improve your overall oral health. At Leesburg Family Dental, we provide a wide range of dental services to ensure our patients get the best possible care, including orthodontics.


What is Orthodontics? 

Orthodontics is a type of dentistry that specializes in treating improper bites or teeth that are misaligned. Sometimes referred to as “braces,” orthodontic treatment can involve braces, retainers, and other devices to help realign teeth and bring them into proper alignment. In addition to providing aesthetic benefits, orthodontic treatment can also benefit your oral health by preventing tooth decay and periodontal disease. 


Benefits of Orthodontic Treatment 

The most obvious benefit of orthodontic treatment is that it helps improve your smile. Straighter teeth will look more attractive and give you greater confidence when you’re out in public or interacting with others. But there are also many other benefits associated with orthodontic treatments, such as: 

  • Better Oral Hygiene – Properly aligned teeth are easier to keep clean because they are less likely to have food particles trapped between them, and hard-to-reach areas are easier to access when brushing or flossing. This reduces the risk of plaque buildup, tooth decay, and gum inflammation or infection caused by bacteria buildup. 
  • Reduced Risk Of Injury – Misaligned or crooked teeth can cause uneven pressure on certain parts of your mouth, leading to injury or discomfort over time. Proper alignment eliminates this risk, reducing headaches and jaw pain caused by improper bite patterns. 
  • Improved Speech – People who have difficulties speaking clearly due to misaligned teeth may find relief after completing an orthodontic treatment plan, as their speech should become clearer and more understandable following the correct alignment of their teeth structures.
