One of the questions we’re often asked is whether straightening your teeth is a great idea or not. There are a lot of good reasons why you need to consider straightening your teeth and many of them are above and beyond just having a great smile. Other than giving you the perfect smile, when your teeth are crowded or misaligned it’s usually an underlying health issue. Sometimes genetic disorders cause serious teeth malformations. More often, crowded teeth are as a result of ineffective airway which can either be habits like breathing with your mouth open which causes the upper and lower jaws to be different sizes.

If you have crowded teeth, visit a dentist to ensure there is no underlying issue that needs to be corrected. Ideally, it’s worthwhile and healthy to straighten your teeth. There are several procedures or treatments that can be done to achieve this. It could be by using plastic aligners or braces. The idea is to have slight pressure overtime that moves teeth into position regardless of the technique you choose. The beauty of Invisalign treatment is that they are typically invisible and easier to manage compared to braces.

When you straighten your teeth, you’re not just doing it for a pretty smile, you will be promoting a healthy mouth. Less crowded teeth are often easier to keep clean and prevent decay and cavities.
