How Orthodontic Treatment Helps Overall Health


Orthodontic treatment goes beyond cosmetic looks. It can help improve a person’s overall health in many ways. Our team at Alliston Orthodontics is happy to share the many benefits orthodontic treatment can have on your oral and overall health!

Properly aligned teeth can help with chewing and digestion. They can also establish an overall balance for dentofacial health. For children and teens, orthodontic treatment can focus on ensuring proper jaw growth during their developmental years. This can help avoid complicated oral surgery down the road.

Crooked teeth can cause stress, pressure and pain on the jaw, leading to issues including TMJD. Symptoms of TMJD include headaches, pain or tenderness in your jaw, difficulty chewing, aching facial pain, locking of the joint – making it difficult to open or close your mouth and aching pain in and around your ear. Orthodontic treatment can help alleviate these problems and improve daily function and overall health.

Additionally, orthodontic treatment can address airway health and breathing. It can help open up passageways for better airflow.

An aligned smile is easier to clean. Oral health is known as the window to overall health. Keeping up good oral hygiene can be linked to good overall health as well.
