Most people think about straightening their teeth so they look pretty and what they don’t always realize is that straight teeth helps your overall oral health. Don’t get us wrong, our patients are very happy with their straight smiles and they also notice that their teeth are easier to keep clean making them less prone to gum disease. Also, moving teeth improves the bite which can minimize recession and broken teeth along with headaches and jaw pain. When teeth are not properly aligned, they wear down and chip overtime. This changes your smile to show far less upper teeth more lower teeth.
