Yes, You Need Braces

Posted .

We’re asked this question a lot in Baker Orthodontics in Bakersfield, California. The answer that Dr. Kyle Baker gives is the same almost every time.

“Yes, you need braces.”

But we understand that, at times, that doesn’t feel like a complete answer. So to help understand why braces are recommended so often by Dr. Kyle Baker and the team, take a few minutes to read this blog post.

Oral health
Your oral health is impacted hugely by whether or not your teeth are straight. If that statement sounds confusing, don’t worry. A lot of people don’t understand it right off the bat.

But when your teeth are straight, that means there are fewer nooks and crannies for germs to build up along your teeth. You’ll also have less plaque buildup with straight teeth. This keeps your teeth in much better shape than if you had a mouth full of crooked chompers.

Easier to clean
Straight teeth are a lot easier to clean than crooked teeth. You’ll have a much easier time keeping cavities at bay, in addition to flossing. You can say goodbye to the risk of gum disease as well.

Your teeth play a huge role in your daily life, and the more you work to help keep them in great shape, the better off you’ll be. For more information, call us today at 661-322-2263.
