Crooked Teeth are more likely to be lost due to tooth decay or periodontal disease as they are harder to clean despite regular brushing and flossing. Crooked teeth also cause extra stress on the muscles in your jaw which can lead to a variety of problems including pain in the neck, shoulders and the back, headaches and TMJ syndrome. At times, crooked teeth can even result in speech problems that can affect your confidence. After getting your crooked teeth corrected you will have a more attractive smile. You’ll have better oral health and teeth that are less susceptible to decay and disease.
