Are your teeth straight?
It’s a little known fact that teeth that are misaligned are also more likely to be unhealthy. This is because teeth that are crooked or overcrowded are often more difficult to keep clean and sometimes feature areas that the toothbrush, floss or an interdental brush isn’t able to reach. If this is the case for you, we may recommend that you consider some form of orthodontic treatment in order to help you get the fresh breath you’re looking for.
No longer the sole preserve of teenagers and young people, orthodontic treatment is now a popular option for many adult patients. As well as the fact that this kind of treatment can make your teeth look better, it can also help you to achieve better oral health and fresher breath. Who knew?!
