In a perfect world, everyone’s teeth would grow straight without protruding, overlapping, or being crooked. Unfortunately, most smiles require a little help to straighten and function properly. 

Why Straighten Your Teeth?

Crooked, gapped, and crowded teeth can wear unevenly overtime leading to:

  • loss of tooth structure
  • headaches
  • jaw pain
  • decay
  • poor self-esteem
  • poor health
  • difficulty chewing and cleaning
  • difficulty with speech and more. 

Having misaligned teeth affects more than just dental health. A person’s whole-body health is impacted. The bacteria that can accumulate when your mouth is not in alignment can lead to serious health problems, such as:

  • risk of respiratory infections 
  • risk of dementia and Alzheimer
  • risk of heart disease 
  • risk of diabetes 

The good news is the latest advancements in teeth straightening orthodontics make having straight teeth easier than ever.
