Why is straightening your teeth important?

The good news is that adult orthodontics in Etobicoke doesn't always have to involve braces. Invisible braces with Invisalign make it easy and convenient for adults to straighten their teeth with the utmost discretion.

You may wonder why it's so important to align your teeth properly. After all, you might've lived with your gap or your overlapped teeth for a while. 

Importance of Properly Aligned Teeth

The truth is, it's much easier to brush and floss straight teeth. Teeth that overlap are perfect traps for bacteria that can lead to problems like tooth decay and gum disease. You might also be at risk for fractures and premature wear to teeth that are functioning in ways they weren't designed for because they're out of alignment.

A bite that does not align correctly can also cause issues for your jaw joint, resulting in painful headaches, tenderness when you chew food, neck or shoulder pain, and popping or even locking of your jaw.
