Hey all,

 

I am considering getting corrective teeth implements because my lower teeth are somewhat out of shape. 

 

I was wondering if there is any data on the relationship between straight teeth and dental and oral hygiene/health

 

Thanks

Okay, since nobody else responded I will add my own recent experiences. I learned that you can have flossing cavities if your teeth are not relatively straight, AND it increases your chances of developing other types of cavities. I had 10 cavities filled, that I was not even aware of, in the past year. They tell me my chances of developing any more cavities after the Ortho treatment is very small, unless I intentionally abuse my teeth.

 

The reason should be clear, when you have over-lapping teeth, you can't get to all the areas you need to get even with the best and most advanced toothbrushes out there.

Sincerely, it's vital. Having crowded teeth can be a straight line journey to temporomandibular joint trouble. An uneven bite may force unhealthy contact between your upper and lower mandible. And the important higiene question you mention, a crowded denture inadequate contacts between teeth may preclude an appropriate cleaning procedure and therefore favour decay.

 

Brackets are in fashion today even in grown ups. But in case you want to hide yours, you can use LINGUAL ORTHODONTICS or INVISALIGN.

 

BTW, my wife is a >30 years of experience orthodontist.

Well at 34 Years of age, I think Braces are the best option for me because they straighten the teeth more permanently than anything else, including invisalign. 

 

In approximately a month from now I will start my Orthodontics treatment and begin to have my teeth stretched out to a normal appearance. I look forward to that and smiling with a full on metal mouth. I heard chicks dig it.

Guys, I got the top braces on. They need to correct an over-bite before putting the bottom ones on. But it feels like having gum on my teeth all the time.

Glad you took the first step, the hardest. Correcting your overbite will not only improve your bite and your maxilar and mandibular function, but your face side profile aswell. That'll truly make chicks exclaim 'Wow! You look so nice! Where have you kept hidden that irresisitible smile till now? Let's go party all nite long!' :D Keep it up all the way up to a better smile. It pretty deserves the effort. Best regards, Engadin.

I just got my Bottom Braces on Last week. These ones are a little more a pain in the ass than the top ones. They scratched the inside of my mouth more, but they added double threads to block most of that sensation, and I am getting used to them daily. Of course, eating is challenging with these things on!
