It’s a question we get more often than you’d think. That’s a good part of the reason that we decided to address the topic in a blog post. We’re asked on a regular basis whether or not braces are a necessary treatment procedure, even if you feel your teeth are straight enough.

There are a ton of different reasons to get braces, in addition to straightening your teeth. Let’s look at a few of them, which are the main reasons that Dr. Karson Kupiec at Kupiec Orthodontics in Imperial, California recommends you get braces.

Oral health
Your oral health is impacted hugely by whether or not your teeth are straight. If that statement sounds confusing, don’t worry. A lot of people don’t understand it right off the bat.

But when your teeth are straight, that means there are fewer nooks and crannies for germs to build up along your teeth. You’ll also have less plaque buildup with straight teeth. This keeps your teeth in much better shape than if you had a mouth full of crooked chompers.

Easier to clean
Straight teeth are a lot easier to clean than crooked teeth. You’ll have a much easier time keeping cavities at bay, in addition to flossing. You can say goodbye to the risk of gum disease as well.

Your teeth play a huge role in your daily life, and the more you work to help keep them in great shape, the better off you’ll be. For more information, call us today at 760-355-3800.
