If your teeth are crowded, crooked, or gapped, our orthodontist may recommend braces or Invisalign® to gently straighten your teeth over time. It may come as a surprise to learn that straightening your teeth provides many benefits to you and your smile.

Straight Teeth Are Easier to Clean
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 tooth decay. Teeth that have been straightened through orthodontic treatment are much easier to brush and floss properly.

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 securely around the teeth. Gums that fit properly around the teeth are a healthy defense against gum disease.

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