There are at least two answers to this question. The first involves confidence. When you have a straight smile, you feel more confident about sharing it with others. And that’s what everyone wants–to feel confident enough to smile openly instead hiding teeth behind a closed-mouth smile.
Confidence is just one aspect, though. There’s an even more important reason that having straight teeth is important, and it goes back to your oral health. Put simply, straight teeth are easier to clean. Misaligned teeth, meanwhile, create places for bacteria and plaque to hide. And the more of both that you have in your smile, the more vulnerable you are to things like gum disease and tooth decay.
In our next post, we’re going to talk about one of the ways that Dr. Salivonchik can help you enjoy a straighter smile. But in this post, we just want to make you aware of the foundational importance of straight teeth.
