Not only are crooked teeth inconvenient, but studies have shown that they can be linked to lung problems and coronary issues. Crooked teeth are more difficult to clean, which leads to plaque buildup and gum disease. Gum disease causes infection that travels through the bloodstream affecting the heart, lungs and overall health.
The good news is that the modern dentist is able to provide you with a host of options to straighten your teeth. What choices might you have?
– Braces can now be placed behind the teeth (lingual braces)
– Clear plastic alignment systems can likewise straighten teeth, yet are more discreet
– Get your teeth cleaned regularly to prevent plaque buildup.
“These days, when it comes to braces, the options are more discreet than those of 40 years ago.”
