For most patients, straight teeth mean a terrific smile. But did you know that properly aligned teeth are healthier? Overlapped, crooked, or rotated teeth create a daily cleaning challenge. Food and bacterial plaque accumulate slowly in the tiny spaces that your toothbrush and floss can't reach. The acidic toxins that seep out of the bacterial sludge can lead to cavities and inflamed, diseased gums. Helping even a couple straggling teeth find their proper place can leave you with a healthier mouth.
Straightening teeth isn't just for kids! Adults often make the most dedicated orthodontic patients, and it's never too late to discuss the options for a bright, straight smile. If you're not sure wires fit your tolerance level, don't worry. Invisible methods can work extremely well for many cases, and Dr. Lee can help you explore the possibilities.
