When you think of straight teeth, you may just think of a confident beautiful smile. But did you know that there are many other benefits to a having straight teeth that go far beyond a beautiful confident smile?

Benefits of Having Straight Teeth

1. Healthy Gums: Healthy gums are a foundation to a healthy smile. The health of your mouth and your body are all connected, and your gums are an essential foundation to your overall health and wellness. When your teeth are spaced out or crowded, it is possible for them to become inflamed, which can be a sign of periodontal disease.

2. Tooth Wear: We use our teeth every day and it is normal for our enamel to wear out as we grow older. However, crowded teeth can cause your teeth to pop out in abnormal places, which rub against other teeth. Over time this can cause unnecessary wear to your tooth enamel.

3. Easier to Clean: A great benefit of straight teeth is the ease of keeping your teeth clean, which means a healthier smile. A crowded set of teeth are difficult to floss, which can lead to plaque, tooth decay, and periodontal disease.
