The Importance of Straight Teeth
Although on the surface straight teeth appear to be a cosmetic issue, the truth is that straight teeth are important for more than just your own self-confidence.
When teeth are crowded or crooked, the tight and/or overlapping areas become very difficult to clean. It’s hard to effectively reach these areas with a toothbrush or floss. This leads to the accumulation of plaque and tartar, which increases your risk for developing cavities and gum disease. Teeth with gaps are more likely to trap food, leading to gum irritation, bad breath, and decay.
Misaligned teeth are more prone to erosion caused by grinding and clenching. The uneven pressure when you chew – or even while you are sleeping – could lead to an aching jaw, chipped teeth, or even cracks and fractures.
