Straight, properly aligned teeth can help avoid the negative effects of periodontal disease.
Properly aligned teeth are easier to brush and floss. Properly positioned teeth can help gums “fit” more tightly around them, which may lead to better periodontal health.
With good oral hygiene, the chances of having plaque retention, tooth decay, and periodontal disease can be reduced.
Properly aligned teeth can be less stressful on the supporting jaw bone and join.
