Orthodontics like braces and Invisalign® can straighten any crooked smile. This helps your self-confidence, but it also can be imperative for your dental health.
The benefits of straightening teeth
Straight teeth look nice, but they’re also a healthy choice. Aligned teeth are far easier to clean, which can prevent decay, tooth loss, and gum disease. Crooked teeth, on the other hand, are hard to clean and may wear unevenly, causing jaw or tooth discomfort. This may develop into further chronic head or neck pain.
How teeth are straightened
Orthodontics like braces, invisible braces, and Invisalign® straighten teeth by applied pressure – either with wires and brackets attached to the teeth, or with a series of trays (called aligners) that are moulded to fit the teeth and subtly shift them over time. Orthodontics, no matter the type, usually take at least a year to straighten teeth, but this can extend to 2 or 3 years for extremely crooked smiles.
