Straighter teeth lead to healthier gums. Properly positioned teeth are easier to brush and floss than teeth that are crowded, crooked, or spaced too fare apart. Properly aligned teeth can help gums ”fit” tighter around them, which may lead to better periodontal health.
Teeth become easier to clean when straightened. With good oral hygiene the chances of having plaque retention, tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease can be reduced.
In some instances, speech problems may results from poorly positioned teeth. Correction of the bite can also help improve chewing. Properly aligned teeth are less stressful on the supporting bone and jaw joints. With straight teeth you decrease the risk of dental trauma and abnormal wear from developing. Most people straighten their teeth to feel less self-conscious and more confident.
