If you’re one who has crooked teeth but you’re not sure if you want to commit to orthodontic treatment, then our Route 32 Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics team has some information that might be helpful to you.

Having a straight smile is very important. In fact, there are three reasons why it is so important, and those reasons are:

Reason No. 1: You’ll finally love your appearance
Usually, when you have crooked teeth, you feel self-conscious and embarrassed of your smile. So, if you decide to align your teeth, you’ll finally love your appearance and you’ll no longer be afraid to pose for pictures or laugh at jokes.

Reason No. 2: Your chances of having dental issues will decrease
Typically, when you have a misaligned smile, food particles and plaque tend to get trapped in the little hard-to-clean places between your teeth. And, because those places are hard to clean, those particles will begin to threaten your smile, creating tooth decay and gum disease.

Reason No. 3: Your mouth will function properly
If you have aligned teeth, you will have a proper bite, which means you will be able to chew and eat much better. This will help make the daily chore of eating much easier. Having straight teeth will also improve your speech, which will boost your self-esteem.

As you can see, having a straight smile can help you in many ways.
