October Is Orthodontic Health Awareness Month
Posted on 10/01/2020

At Olson Orthodontics, we are proud to announce that October is orthodontic health awareness month. This month (and every month) our orthodontist and staff are passionate about health and orthodontic awareness. Our family practice enjoys giving our patients the beautiful, functional smiles they’ve always dreamed of. This month, we want to raise awareness about orthodontics and how it can impact your overall health.

5 Ways Orthodontic Health Can Change Your Life

For us, orthodontic health is so much more than straight teeth and aesthetics. Olson Orthodontics is confident that braces or Invisalign will change your life for the better, in more ways than one. Here are five ways that orthodontic care can change your life and your health:

1. Speech: Crooked teeth and a misaligned bite can cause speech impediments. With orthodontics, you will speak more clearly and enunciate your words.

2. Fewer Headaches: With braces and Invisalign, you can reduce the uneven ware that can be caused by crooked teeth and a poorly aligned bite. This will reduce the pressure on your jaw and therefore cause less headaches.

3. Improved Health: Decay can be hidden by crooked teeth, making it more difficult to see the issue early on. These issues may increase your risk for heart disease and high blood sugar. Straightening your teeth with braces will allow for better oral hygiene and improved general health for the entire body.

4. Easier Chewing: Crooked teeth can make it difficult to chew foods and break them down properly. This can then lead to digestive problems in some cases. Orthodontic treatment will allow you to chew and bite correctly while consuming all the foods you please!

5. Fewer Gum & Tissue Issues: Crooked teeth can crowd your mouth, pushing into your gums and mouth tissues. This can be painful, resulting in cuts, sores, and sometimes infections. By straightening your teeth, they will align correctly in your mouth and you will avoid this discomfort.
