Why Straighten Teeth?

Updated: Jul 9, 2019

why do we straighten teeth?

Having straight teeth can positively affect your smile, self confidence and the way you interact with others. A smile can mean so much more!

Orthodontic treatment can give you a gorgeous smile, it also contributes to your self-confidence, self-esteem and self-image, which are important qualities at any age. If your have crooked teeth, there are a number of benefits to getting your teeth straightened:


People are very aware of how teeth look and an attractive smile can play an important role in enhancing self-confidence. These days, with good oral hygiene and regular dental care, your teeth should last a lifetime – wouldn’t it be nice if they looked good too?


It’s more difficult to clean your teeth when they are crowded and overlapping. Inadequate cleaning is a major factor in tooth decay, gum disease and eventual tooth loss. Whilst it is possible to keep even the most crooked teeth clean, having your teeth straightened will make it easier for you to look after them.

Tooth Wear

It is claimed that some bad bites lead to clenching, grinding, and excessive wear and/or uneven wear of the teeth.

Gum Damage

In severe malocclusions the teeth can damage the gum. For example, in cases of deep bite, the lower front teeth can bite into the gum behind the upper front teeth.

Jaw Joint It is claimed that some bad bites stress the jaw joint causing damage and pain in and around the joint.

There are many more reasons to why we should have straight teeth, but its up to you to do something about it.
