Why Straighten Teeth?
Straight teeth are better than crooked ones when it comes to performing chewing, biting and speaking functions. A straight smile also has the potential for boosting confidence as well as being aesthetically pleasing in appearance; plus you'll be less prone to dental ailments if your mouth is in line with how others expect them too!
The three most common types of malocclusion are overbite, under bite and crossbites. Each one has a significant impact on function as well as appearance for the teeth.
Here is a brief overview of some of the main disorders associated with crooked teeth:
Teeth can be straightened using either orthodontic braces or customized aligning trays. Ortho-braces are usually affixed to the teeth for a set duration and require regular tightening by your dentist; they're removed when treatment is complete! Fixed dental appliances like these may also help with some types of misalignment.
Alignment trays are a great way to move teeth without having it be as drastic. These removable appliances can help those with milder cases of misalignment, and they're replaced every few weeks during treatment for optimal results!
