Are you happy with the smile you see when you look in the mirror? Are your teeth perfectly white and perfectly straight? Or do you see teeth that look too crowded, along with teeth that are not straight? You might also notice that some of your teeth stick out. You may have been told that your teeth are misaligned, or that your bite is wrong.
If you have noticed any of these signs of a bite problem, you should know that not only is your bite affecting your cosmetic looks, it may also be affecting your health as well. In fact, research shows that if your teeth are straighter, your overall health will improve. Not sure what we're talking about? Keep reading. We have some suggestions for you.
Orthodontic Treatment Might be a Solution
Crooked or crowded teeth can make oral hygiene difficult. You may not be able to brush or floss those teeth properly, which could lead to tooth decay, tooth loss, or gum disease. There can also be problems down the road from jaw that is misaligned.
If you have crooked teeth, and you think you might want to get them straightened, there are several ways to go about doing it. There are many different types of appliances adults can wear that are not as noticeable as a mouth full of metal. There are also clear braces that are barely visible to the naked eye, and that can be taken out by the wearer. All kinds of options are there for you to choose from.
If you have a mouth full of crooked teeth, and you are not sure what to do, why not give us a call? We can put you on a path to a healthier, straighter smile!
