Are your teeth out of alignment and in need of adjustment? Misaligned teeth can affect all areas of your oral health, and play a role in your physical and mental health as well. Finding the perfect orthodontic treatment for your smile will help you on the path to health and happiness.
Straight smiles make happy smiles because a set of crooked teeth can easily cause feelings of anxiety or stress. People tend to not smile as much when they have insecurities about their smile due to a misalignment or other spacing issue. This leads to increased levels of depression and low self-esteem. Orthodontic braces remove this fear by straightening your smile and creating a more positive self-image.
Straighter smiles are also easier to clean and care for. With crooked teeth, there are more areas that bacteria and plaque can hide or sneak into, which h can often be difficult to brush or floss. Straight smiles making brushing and flossing much easier and much more effective. A straight smile is also less likely to suffer from oral disorders such as TMDs or bruxism.
