Did you know having straight teeth isn’t just about looks?

Did you know that there are many health benefits to having your teeth straightened?

If you’re wondering whether you should consider traditional braces or Invisalign, we know that it can be a tough decision, especially for adults. However, the benefits of having straighter teeth are more than just aesthetic!

Straight Teeth are Easier to Clean!

If your teeth are crooked or crowded, flossing and brushing can be more difficult. If you can’t get into all those nooks and crannies between teeth, you risk trapping food particles. This can lead to plaque buildup and higher risk of tooth decay.

Frequent Headaches Could be caused by Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth can place stress on the gums and bone structure that support your teeth. This can lead to headaches and neck pain! Jaw misalignment is a big contributor to chronic headaches as well as pain in the head or neck. If you suffer from chronic pain or headaches, the answer might lie in your teeth.

Have Pain While Eating? Crooked Teeth Could be the Culprit

Did you know that crowded or crooked teeth could compromise chewing? Crowded teeth often reduce the effective surface area available for chewing food.

This could place unnecessary stress on your jaw, causing pain or discomfort. Abnormal tooth wear is also a symptom of crowded or crooked teeth. Tooth on tooth pressure could cause cracks and chips in teeth.
