A correction in the positioning of teeth will always lead to an improvement in mouth hygiene. Dealing with problems which are relatively easy to treat in young patients helps to prevent major treatments such as tooth extractions in later life.
Prophylactic Improvements due to correction of tooth displacement
- Improvements and possibilities of dental hygiene: Tilted and contorted teeth offer niches which are impossible to reach during your daily dental routine. This is why caries can develop easily in these niches. An orthodontic treamtent is able to help here.
- Furthermore an early orthodontic treamtment is easier in terms of costs and outlay in comparison to later treatments which would require more extensive treamtents (e.g extractions).
- The third important point is the implementation of a secure tooth system (occlusion) in order to prevent a yaw displacement and degenerative changes.
