Why Straighten Your Teeth?

Most of us consider crooked teeth a cosmetic concern, resisting treatment for a variety of reasons. But crooked teeth can also be the cause of a range of dental problems including tooth decay, tooth damage and TMJ disorders. Crooked teeth are difficult to brush and floss effectively and can create an imbalance in the bite which can lead to TMJ symptoms. Short term orthodontic treatment can give you a smile that not only looks great but supports lasting oral health.
