Studies show that one of the first things people notice about you is your smile. For most people a spectacular smile is a wonderful asset and the most obvious benefit of orthodontics. It contributes to enhanced self-esteem, self-confidence and self-image. A beautiful smile is universally known as a sign of health and beauty.
In addition to esthetics our teeth serve many other functions. Usually if the teeth are not aligned the bite is also wrong. Health, function and esthetics are compromised. Straight teeth are obviously easier to keep clean from plaque that can cause decay, bad breath and gum disease. Well aligned teeth and jaws provide optimum function and make chewing food more efficient.
