In order to ensure the best possible oral health for your smile, it is generally noted that a person’s teeth need to be straight. This is because numerous ailments and issues can arise with crooked teeth.

Your mouth tends to function much better with straight teeth, including eating and speaking.

In addition, straight teeth are much more useful for keeping your teeth clean and avoiding tooth decay and gum disease. This is because crooked teeth can often become havens for bacteria and debris in spaces that can be hard to reach with routine oral health care cleaning techniques. For additional questions regarding braces, consult with your orthodontist.

With a straighter smile comes a boost in your self-esteem and a positive self-image. Straight teeth are deemed more acceptable in social settings and amongst your co-workers and peers. No matter your age, straighter teeth give you a smile you can show off with pride.
