If your teeth are crowded, crooked, or gapped, our orthodontist may recommend braces or Invisalign® to gently straighten your teeth over a period of time. It may come as a surprise to learn that straightening your teeth provides many benefits to you and your smile.
Unfortunately, teeth that are crooked are crowded are difficult to clean properly. Overlapping teeth can hide plaque and food particles. This can heighten the risk of tooth decay. It is much easier to thoroughly brush and floss teeth that have been straightened through orthodontic treatment.
Teeth that are crowded or gapped can cause swollen, red gums. Once the teeth are properly aligned, the gums can fit more securely around the teeth. Gums that fit properly around the teeth are a healthy, strong defense against gum disease.
Having crowded, gapped, or crooked teeth can be embarrassing. Some people with misaligned teeth are even ashamed to smile. A straight smile can enhance the beauty of your smile and boost your confidence!
