Our Latest Stories

Benefits of Straight Teeth

  • Able to brush teeth better.  Overlapping teeth can trap food particles whereas straight teeth allow for easier and better brushing and flossing.

  • Clear speech.  Crooked teeth may cause speech impediments which can affect confidence.

  • Easier eating.  Crooked and crowded teeth can compromise chewing.

  • Less Accident prone teeth.  Protruding teeth are more prone to breaking in a fall.

  • Fewer headaches.  Crowded teeth may wear unevenly.  This uneven wear can put pressure on the jaw thereby resulting in chronic headaches.

  • Improved Gum Health.  You are able to brush straighter teeth better and better oral hygiene helps prevent gum disease.

  • Better overall health.  Improved oral hygiene means less tooth decay and gum disease, both of which are linked to heart disease, diabetes and stroke.

  • Cost effective dental care.  Fewer severe dental health issues with straight teeth and fewer issues means less expensive treatment

  • Lower the risk of soft tissue injury.  Crowded teeth can push against soft tissues in the mouth leading to cuts, sores and infections.

  • Increased self-esteem.  This is one of the biggest benefits of straight teeth.  More confidence at work or school or in social situations.
