Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/18/2017 -- Patients who have never had orthodontic treatment or whose orthodontic health has begun to decline over the years are encouraged to contact Center City Emergency Dentist for adult orthodontics in Philadelphia. Their treatment can help to contribute to better long-term oral hygiene by making flossing and brushing more comprehensive and simple.
There is a common misconception that orthodontic work like braces and custom-molded retainers are a tool of vanity only. While most people will agree that straight teeth do look better, adult braces in Philadelphia also help to improve oral hygiene and prevent the need for painful and time-consuming oral surgery later on.
The majority of oral hygiene issues, which include gum disease and tooth decay, result from bacteria colonizing on the surface of the tooth an in-between the cracks and crevices of the teeth. During meals, bits of food can get stuck between teeth- the sugar and protein from these tiny food particles provide the basis for bacteria colonies to flourish and begin to degrade the structural integrity of the tooth enamel.
Most orthopedic issues are related to tooth crowding, which can cause teeth to overlap, creating exaggerated tooth crevices that can be difficult to floss adequately. With orthodontic treatment, residents who suffer from overcrowding or other tooth alignment issues can enjoy easier brushing and flossing, which will help them to better remove bacteria and the diseases they can cause.
