The Perks of Having Straight Teeth


At Accorde Orthodontists, we're proud to have helped countless patients throughout the Rogers, Maple Grove, and Champlin areas achieve a beautiful new smile, and we offer a variety of treatment methods including braces and Invisalign to suit our patients' needs. But why bother getting a new smile in the first place? As it turns out, having straight teeth comes with a number of major advantages that help you in nearly every area of life – many more than you might realize!


5 Benefits of a Straight Smile


  • Appearance: The most obvious benefit is the aesthetic improvement. Orthodontic treatment helps you achieve a beautiful smile, and you'll get to carry that with you everywhere you go – it's an instant improvement in your first impression on other people.

  • Confidence: A straight smile is more than just skin deep. Having a smile you feel proud of gives you a boost of confidence, happiness, and self-esteem that radiates through every area of your personal and professional life.

  • Dental Health: Crooked teeth form nooks and crannies that are ideal for bacteria to hide and difficult to keep clean, and over time, this can cause cavities and tooth decay. A straight smile is easier to clean through brushing and flossing, helping you keep your teeth healthy in the long term.

  • Cardiovascular Health: Periodontal (gum) disease, which can develop in from bacteria and plaque on the teeth, has been linked to heart and cardiovascular disease – so a straight smile gives you a safeguard against both dental and heart disease.

  • Headache Relief: When the teeth don't fit together correctly, it can often cause the jawbone to overact, leading to a condition called TMD. TMD can cause headaches and serious pain in the jaws, and a straight smile can help to prevent or relieve pain from TMD.
