Orthodontic treatments lead to better dental health Orthodontic treatment not only improves individuals' physical health, but it can also prevent future illness.

The American Dental Association says it is important to have straight teeth because if untreated, over-crowding can lead to many problems such as gum disease, an infection caused by bacteria. According to the CDC, about 4-12 percent of adults have this as an advanced state an advanced stage of the disease. If treated for othodontic work at a young age, it could prevent this from happening later in life.

This health issue is not the only thing orthodontic work can fix. Individuals' with an over or under-bite, as well as mis-aligned teeth can also find this type of treatment is very helpful.

Although the importance of seeing an orthodontist is stressed beginning at an early age, it is never too late to seek treatment. According to, there are 1 million adults in North America who have braces.

Orthodontic treatment could get expensive but one way to find affordable treatment is through discounted dental plans for individuals and their families.
