Why Are Straight Teeth Important?

Main Reasons to Straighten Your Smile



Improving your smile and overall appearance is a main reason to straigthen your smile. Having a white, straight smile is perceived worldwide as a beauty standard. According to a study completed in 2012, 38% of Americans would decline a second date if the suitor has misaligned teeth.

Although appearance is a main reason why people decide to straighten their teeth, having a straight smile is also very ipmortant for the halth of your smile and the function of your teeth. Crooked teeth are misaligned, making them much harder for you to keep clean. This is because the misaligned teeth create small spaces between the teeth making it difficult to floss and for the toothbrush bristles to reach all surfaces of your teeth. This inability to clean around your teeth can cause serious gum issues.

Also, having misaligned teeth can cause an abnormal bite. This can lead to frequent jaw pain and difficulty chewing your food.

In the past, the only way to straighten teeth was wtih metal brackets. Fortunately, with new technology many people's smiles can be straightened using Invisalign. Invisalign is clear aligners that work to straighten your teeth discreetly--no metal at all!
