The Benefits of Straight Teeth
People want straight teeth and a nice smile for many reasons. While a nicely aligned smile can be the part of your looks that pulls everything else together, a crooked smile can draw attention away from an otherwise striking appearance. A great smile is vital to your self-confidence.
However, the benefits of straight teeth do not end with just your appearance.
• Crooked teeth can interfere with proper chewing, a problem to deal with at every meal.
• Good oral hygiene can be difficult and ineffective with crooked teeth. When your teeth are not straight there will be hard-to-reach spaces. This can lead to gum disease, tooth decay or even lost teeth.
Hage Orthodontics specializes in creating beautiful smiles. Orthodontics is a highly specialized field of dentistry involving the study and treatment of irregular bites.
An abnormal bite can be the result of many factors such as uneven or missing teeth or a jaw that is out of proportion. Orthodontic patients do not have to sacrifice their looks to have a beautiful smile. Treatment options such as clear ceramic braces and Invisalign™ help to make orthodontic treatment less obvious.
Whether you are a parent of a child with crooked teeth or are considering orthodontics for yourself, please give us a call. We’ll be happy to explain all the benefits that modern orthodontics can offer you.

I never thought of the added difficultly that crooked teeth cause to your overall oral hygiene. I am glad I had braces as a kid because my teeth are straight and look nice. I never thought that there were more benefits than this. I will have to take my kids in to see if they are going to need orthodontic help.
You wrote that crooked teeth can actually make simple things like chewing difficult, which is very frustrating as you do that multiple times a day. My son’s teeth are growing in rather crooked and I was wondering if we should get him into a professional and see if he needs braces. On top of being very practical, I think it would also help him be confident, which is something you really need growing up in today’s world.
