Straight Teeth Equal Healthy Teeth

WAXHAW, NC – Straight teeth are not only esthetic and beautiful but also prevent an entire array of dental and health problems.

For example, straight teeth and proper bite play a crucial role in our facial structures and symmetry of function, especially in the TMJ (Temporo-Mandibular Joint). When teeth and bite are misaligned, TMJ compensates by overworking certain muscles. As a result, teeth wear is accelerated.

In addition, straight teeth are easier to brush and floss, which results in fewer cavities and lowers the risk of gum recession, gum disease, and bone loss.

The proper arch form that comes with straight teeth helps prevent sleep apnea by allowing room for the tongue to rest passively. Lastly, crooked teeth are more prone to trauma due to misalignment and unequal distribution of forces.

Besides boosting self-confidence, a straight set of pearly whites will serve you longer, make you smile more, and improve your mood and that of those around you.
