The benefits of orthodontics
1 / Improved breathing through the nose.
This allows for harmonious growth of the face, filtration of the air entering the lungs as well as the proper functioning of thermoregulation of the brain.
Thermoregulation of the brain is important for better quality sleep and healthy brain development in growing children.
Poor nasal ventilation causes the child to breathe “with an open mouth” and induces snoring. The growth of the face can be disturbed and disharmonious. The main signs are dark circles, faded cheekbones, an elongated and tired-looking face.
2 / Better chewing.
Chewing properly will promote good digestion and better jaw coordination. When the jaws are well coordinated, it helps prevent premature wear of the teeth as well as protect the temporomandibular joint.
3 / Protect your teeth.
Orthodontic treatment will align your child’s teeth. This alignment will have several advantages including:
- Reduced risk of fracture during a fall / impact on the face.
- More efficient brushing and therefore a reduction in caries lesions.
- Preparation for the placement of implants to replace missing teeth.
4 / Contribute to well-being.
At any age, the alignment of the teeth and the correct position of the jaws will lead to better confidence and self-esteem. It is an additional asset in the social and professional life of our patients. Orthodontic treatment is part of a medical process. Beyond the harmonization of the smile, it contributes to the improvement of oral health, and health in general.
