Why should I straighten my teeth?
In addition to improving the aesthetics of your smile, straightening your teeth can help your mouth become healthier overall. Crooked teeth make it difficult to appropriately clean between them and increase the risk of decay and cavities, which can lead to periodontal disease or even tooth loss. When your teeth are crooked, it also puts strain on your teeth in unusual places, which may lead to wear and tear and fractures. Having beautiful, straight teeth can also improve your self-confidence and self-esteem.
Dr. Maher is a certified provider for Invisalign, which provides a way for your teeth to be easily and painlessly straightened without the need for the brackets and wires that go along with traditional braces. For more information about Invisalign, please call our Walnut Creek dental office today.
