Do I need orthodontics?

If your teeth are crowded, crooked, or gapped, orthodontics may be a good choice for improving your smile. Straightening your teeth can enhance the health, beauty, and functionality of your smile. Most people understand that straighter teeth are more attractive, but did you know that properly aligned teeth are also at a lower risk for dental problems like tooth decay and periodontal disease? Furthermore, correcting the alignment of the teeth and bite can improve the functionality of your smile for proper chewing, eating, and speaking.
