The benefits of orthodontics are not only the placement of straight and beautiful teeth, but also avoiding future problems. The bad position of the teeth, in children and adults, facilitates the accumulation of bacteria between them and therefore, increases the probability of problems in the gums such as gingivitis or periodontitis or cavities when the teeth are disordered.
In addition, the functional overload from this poor position can accelerate the loss of supporting bone if there is a gum problem.
Orthodontic treatments can also benefit adult patients and especially patients with gum problems as it facilitates interdental hygiene, provides a stable occlusion between the upper and lower teeth and allows the teeth to regain their position when they have been displaced or separated. as a consequence of bone loss.
