Orthodontics for Your Crooked Smile

Crooked, tilted or tipped teeth don’t do the rest of your mouth any favors. Not only are they hard to brush and floss, but they are also hard on your other teeth. Thankfully orthodontics in Laguna Hills can take care of the issue, and best of all some patients may not need conventional wires and brackets.

Crowded Teeth Hurt Your Smile

When teeth are crowded, crooked or out of alignment the other teeth will move around as well. As you can imagine this doesn’t do your smile any favors.

According to Dr. Dean Garcia, Dr. Ryan Conkle and Dr. Jeff Buizastrow crooked teeth bring all sorts of issues including tooth decay and gum disease.

Because you can’t brush and floss a crooked smile properly your teeth are easily decayed and gums very susceptible to disease.

With orthodontics you will have a beautiful, healthy smile that is easy to take care of. As you can see there are plenty of advantages when it comes to straight teeth.

Conventional Wires and Brackets

Wires and brackets are best for people who have more severe problems. For instance, people who have seriously tipped or crooked teeth fare better with old school braces. In addition, those with large spaces are best for this type of appliance as well.
