The Benefits of Straight Teeth
Did you know that 74% of adults suffer from crooked teeth? Many grown-ups notice their teeth shifting in their 30s, 40s and 50s, which can make it challenging to properly brush and floss. When your teeth fit together correctly, they last longer and you can minimize the need for costly dental treatments in the future. Since straight teeth are easier to clean, you’re less likely to suffer from tooth decay and periodontal disease, which has been tied to conditions like diabetes and heart disease. Additionally, aligned teeth and jaws can reduce jaw joint (TMJ/TMD) pain and related headaches. Beyond the health benefits, a straighter smile can dramatically improve your appearance, confidence, self-esteem and overall quality of life!
