Why Straighten Crooked Teeth?
Crooked and misaligned teeth are more than a cosmetic issue, they can be the underlying reason for a range of dental concerns that can ultimately affect the health and comfort of your smile.
Teeth that are crooked can be difficult to brush and floss effectively, significantly increasing the risk of developing tooth decay and/or gum disease. In addition, misaligned teeth can often be the cause of bite problems by creating an imbalance in the bite when the teeth do not make contact properly.
Orthodontic treatment often goes beyond creating an aesthetically pleasing smile, improving dental health and reducing the risk of bigger problems down the road.
