We at Dr. Ross Taddeo Orthodontics pride ourselves on the high-quality bracesInvisalign, and other orthodontics that we offer for our patients in East Orlando. Our braces aren’t simply for giving a patient a straighter and more attractive smile – they can also treat bad bites, also known as malocclusions. Malocclusions, such as overbites, underbites, crowding, and crossbites, can negatively affect the way that your mouth functions, which is why it’s so important to undergo orthodontic treatment to get these problems corrected. Having your East Orlando orthodontist treat these problems can lead to a variety of benefits that include, but aren’t limited to, the following.


Your Oral Health Can Improve

When your teeth are straight, it’s much easier to keep them clean; teeth that are crooked or crowded are much more likely to get food stuck between them. This will lead to an increased chance of developing tooth decay. Also, gum disease is more likely to occur as crowded or spaced teeth can cause gums to become inflamed. When your teeth are straighter, your gums will fit more securely around your teeth and stay healthier. Finally, when you have a malocclusion, it can also cause uneven wear of your teeth and deterioration of your jaw.

It Can Lead to Better Overall Health Too

You may be surprised to know that having a great bite can lead to having better overall health as well. It’s true – when your mouth is healthy, you have a better chance of good overall health…and when your mouth isn’t healthy, you may find that the rest of your body suffers. The bacteria that’s associated with gum disease, tooth decay, and other oral infections can lead to serious bodily ailments, such as diabetes, pneumonia, and even heart disease.

You’ll Get Better Nutrition

When you have a malocclusion, it typically means that your teeth don’t meet or align correctly. This can be problematic when you eat as you might not be able to chew properly. If you suffer from a malocclusion, you may not get the nutrition that your body needs. Treating a malocclusion can help fix this problem.

It’s a Boost to Your Self-Esteem

We also feel like it’s important to mention that having a healthy bite and a beautiful smile can bring a person more self-esteem. When you have your ideal bite, you’ll likely be more confident in public. This will allow you to be yourself without having to worry about hiding your smile.
