Crooked teeth are very common. You see them everywhere and quite often you don’t even think twice about it.

Crooked and misaligned teeth are unique to the person and can add personality and charm to their smile. So, if your teeth are crooked you shouldn’t feel like you have to straighten them.

Yet, for many people crooked teeth come with their consequences.

Here are 5 reasons why you should consider straightening your teeth even if having a perfect smile isn’t at the top of the list.

  1. Difficult to maintain – brushing/flossing
  2. Poor chewing function – biting inside of mouth and tongue
  3. Excessive tooth wear – grinding and stress caused by misalignment
  4. Tooth decay and gum disease – periodontal disease causing more serious infection in the body
  5. Look good and feel good – it’s been proven to boost self-esteem
