A correct bite and tooth alignment play an important role in your health, well-being and confidence. When teeth are not aligned, it can be difficult to maintain good oral hygiene. This can result in tooth decay and premature tooth wear. Other factors include jaw joint issues, such as discomfort, clicking, headaches and head and neck muscular tension. Creating a stable, balanced occlusion (bite) by having the teeth and jaws correctly aligned can assist in the management of these issues.
The impact that a beautiful smile can have on ones’ self-esteem should not be underestimated. Having confidence in your appearance and feeling satisfied when you look in the mirror is also a wonderful motivator. For some patients, having a smile they are proud of might be something they have put off for a long time; however, your initial consultation at Eastern Suburbs Orthodontics is the first step to achieving your goal.
