While it may appear to be purely cosmetic, having straight teeth is, in fact, a very important part of good oral health.
Our team here at Best Dental Care NJ, LLC has the experience – and skill – necessary to help you straighten your teeth and establish a great cosmetic appearance that’s also great for your oral health.

Promotes healthy gums

If your teeth aren’t straight, it can cause serious issues with your gums. Particularly, your gums can easily become red, inflamed, and they may bleed easily. This not only looks bad, but these are signs of gum disease, which is a serious condition that can lead to tooth and jaw bone loss.

Your mouth is easier to clean

The best part about straight teeth is the fact that you now have a much easier job of cleaning your teeth. No more worrying about digging in the crevices and cracks between crooked teeth – simply brush, floss, and rinse, and your mouth is as healthy as possible.
Increases tooth longevity

Your teeth can last quite a while – a lifetime, in fact, if cared for properly – but if your teeth aren’t straight, they won’t last as long. This is due to the fact that crooked teeth wear differently, are more prone to deterioration, and don’t work as effectively as straight ones.

At the end of the day, ensuring your teeth are as straight as possible not only helps you from a cosmetic standpoint but improves your overall oral health as well.
