If your teeth are crowded, crooked, or gapped, our orthodontist may recommend braces or Invisalign® to gently align your teeth over time. Believe it or not, straightening your teeth provides many benefits to you and your smile.

Straight Teeth Are Easier to Take Care Of
Unfortunately, teeth that are crooked are crowded are difficult to clean properly. Overlapping teeth can hide plaque and food particles. This can heighten the risk of decayed teeth. Teeth that have been straightened through orthodontic treatment are much easier to clean sufficiently.

Healthier Gums & Teeth
Teeth that are crowded or gapped can cause swollen, red gums. Once the teeth are properly aligned, the gums can fit more snuggly around the teeth. Gums that fit as they should around the teeth are a strong defense against gum disease and other issues.

Improved Confidence
Having a misaligned smile can be embarrassing. Some people with crooked teeth are even ashamed to smile. A straight smile can improve the appearance of your smile and boost your confidence!
