Everyone really has a wonderful opportunity to get their teeth straightened today. After all, you can wear braces, such as lingual braces or see though aligners, such as Invisalign, without anyone being able to notice. Also, ceramic braces can be worn if you don’t want to wear metal braces. If you don’t straighten and realign your teeth, you can end up paying for dental work that could easily have been avoided.

What Can Happen If You Don’t Straighten Crooked Teeth?

Also, if you don’t straighten crooked teeth, you can have a rough time flossing and brushing. It is pretty difficult to remove food from teeth that take up too much space or which are tightly spaced. In addition, gaps in the mouth can cause teeth to shift out of their natural position, which can lead to problems with alignment. When this occurs, you may have a hard time chewing or suffer other health complaints, such as recurring headaches or facial or jaw pain. People with TMJ may suffer for years because they did not combine orthodontic treatment with surgery. In addition, you can suffer some nutritional deficits when teeth aren’t properly aligned. That is why aligning your smile is so important. Not only will you look better, you will experience improvements in how you speak, eat, or take care of your teeth.

What Is the Best Teeth Straightening Method?

The best teeth straightening method is the method that meets your needs orthodontically, aesthetically, and budget-wise. Our orthodontic team will assess your bite and tell you about your straightening options and our recommendations. If you have a bad bite problem, we may have to prescribe metal braces combined with surgery. On the other hand, if your teeth display moderate crowding, we may suggest you consider lingual braces, ceramic braces, or Invisalign.
