We live in a world that places a pretty big emphasis on a white, beautiful, straight smile. The physical and social benefits of a straight, perfect smile are pretty obvious, but there are some subtle health benefits from it as well that most people aren’t aware of.

Why bother with alignment?

Straightening your teeth is more important than you might think. If your teeth aren’t straight and in their correct order, you’ll end up with a lot of hard angles in your mouth. Those hard angles are tricky to clean – even with floss. Straight teeth, on the other hand, are incredibly easy to clean and that reduces the possibility of dealing with cavities, gum disease, or other oral health problems.

How do I straighten them?

In this day and age you have a ton of options from which to choose if you really want a straight, incredible smile. However, we recommend for our patients who qualify that they look into Invisalign®. Invisalign is a simple and fast method of straightening teeth. Instead of the wires and brackets associated with traditional braces, Invisalign uses a series of plastic aligners that move your teeth into the correct position over time.

The best part is it’s nearly impossible to tell when someone is wearing them!
