Why is orthodontic treatment important?
There are a number of reasons why it is important to seek out orthodontic treatment and the negligence of any concerns can lead to a whole host of problems further down the line. Because crooked teeth are so difficult to clean properly, they are far more susceptible to gum disease, tooth decay and even tooth loss. Orthodontic treatment can also help to reduce or eliminate tooth wear and improve the bad chewing habits which cause stress to the gum tissue and bone. Orthodontic problems will always worsen if left untreated and there is no reason why you shouldn’t have a straight, healthy smile.
