Healthier Gums

When teeth are too widely spaced, the gums can become irritated, inflamed and red. These characteristics not only look bad, but are also a sign of periodontal disease. Straightening your teeth helps the gums fit more securely around the teeth, creating a strong defence against periodontal problems. Your teeth stay secure, and your gums stay happy!

 

Easier to Clean

Crowded, crooked teeth are much harder to floss, which can lead to plaque build up and eventually tooth decay. Getting food caught in traditional metal wire braces can cause a similar problem. With clear aligners, it’s as simple as popping them out whenever you need to eat or brush. No mess, no problem!

 

Prevents Abnormal Tooth Wear

Crowded and crooked teeth often lead to inefficient chewing function and can cause undue wear of tooth enamel. When teeth are in the correct position, chewing is much easier, and teeth run against each other evenly. Now you can eat steak like a champ!

 

Decreased Headaches

Crooked teeth place excessive stress on the gums and bones that supports the teeth. This can be a sign of a jaw misalignment, which can lead to chronic headaches, face or neck pain. You can relax knowing that you’ll be safe from pain after getting a straight smile.

 

Overall Health

Tooth decay and gum disease associated with crooked teeth are caused by decay. If left untreated, these bacteria can lead to mouth sores, bleeding gums and possible tooth loss; and we really don’t want that, do we?
