No doubt, your appearance matters. If you have crooked teeth that’s a problem but not just for your looks.
If you want an attractive smile it’s vital to make sure your teeth are straight. Proper tooth alignment improves the quality of your smile.
According to a study conducted by Kelton for Invisalign, “Those with straight teeth are 21% more likely to be seen as happy, 47% more likely to be viewed as being healthy and 38% more likely to be perceived as smart.” 
Perceptions matter. But there’s more to your crooked teeth problem than what’s on the surface.
Gum disease risk increases with crooked teeth. Plaque and tartar build up give oral bacteria more room to thrive between your teeth.
Straightening and aligning your teeth tightens the space between each tooth and your gum and bone tissue. This helps restrict bacteria from penetrating your tissue causing infection and eventual disease.
Teeth sensitivity is another crooked teeth result. Exposed tooth roots and surfaces are vulnerable to the foods and beverages you consume. Aligned teeth keep the tissue in place and properly protecting each tooth.
Tooth loss can also occur if your crooked teeth are not treated. Decay, infection, and disease are a greater risk when your teeth shift out of alignment. Proper tooth alignment eliminates the gaps where bacteria thrive.
A dental examination can determine the damage crooked teeth are causing. Orthodontic treatment with Invisalign is an effective solution to gradually move your teeth into proper alignment.
