What is teeth straightening?

When it comes to teeth, many people covet the perfect alignment that has come to be known as “The Hollywood Smile”. As a result, teeth-straightening procedures have grown rapidly in popularity. But the benefits of teeth straightening are not just aesthetic; crooked teeth can have an adverse affect on your oral health by making it harder to brush, leading to plaque buildup and to even greater risk of periodontal (gum) disease. Finding a teeth straightening solution that works for you can be confusing, but there are options for all severities of crooked bites, for different price points and timelines so there are options for everyone out there.


Problems crooked teeth can cause

Crooked teeth can create areas of the mouth that are virtually impossible to reach when brushing and can lead to:

  • Gum disease.
  • Overcrowding.
  • Teeth spacing.
  • Tooth decay.
  • Bad breath.
  • Plaque buildup.

As well as these common conditions, teeth can become discoloured when they are incorrectly aligned in different areas. It also means that it is easier for foods and sugars to get stuck in the crowded sections of teeth and be easily missed when brushing or rinsing.
