Children, teens, and adults may require orthodontic therapy to correct misalignment of teeth, whether from uneven positioning, crowding, or gaps due to spacing issues. This can significantly impact a person’s self-image, and their confidence, but it’s also more than a cosmetic problem. Crooked teeth don’t function as well as straight teeth. When teeth are crooked, they are more likely to chip and crack. Plus, crooked teeth are more likely to get food stuck in them and are harder to clean, increasing the risk of gum disease. Fortunately, orthodontic treatment works for patients of all ages, helping you enjoy a beautiful, healthy smile.
