Transforming your teen’s smile can improve their self-confidence, and it will also help their physical health. If left unaddressed, alignment issues can lead to cavities and gum disease. Because it is harder to clean asymmetrical teeth, plaque and food particles get trapped in these uneven surfaces. As these rotting bits of food gather in their mouth, they are more likely to develop cavities.
Once teeth are in a traditional pattern, regular maintenance like flossing and brushing is more effective. Correcting an alignment will help you save money in the long run because you will avoid future issues.
