There is more to straight teeth than simply having a picture perfect smile. If you are weighing the pros and cons of getting adult braces to straighten your smile, you may want to consider the additional health benefits of straight teeth!

Overcrowded teeth or teeth that are spaced with wide gaps are prone to gum problems. Misaligned teeth can cause red or swollen gums. Teeth that are straight and properly aligned have gums that fit around the teeth more accurately, allowing for more secure, stronger teeth and gums. Having straight teeth is one step you can take in the fight against periodontal problems.

Research shows that a bacterium found in the mouth is one of the leading causes of gum disease. Bacteria causes tooth decay and periodontal problems. Bacteria can cause mouth sores, tender/bleeding gums, tooth loss and oral infections. Oral infections have been linked to heart disease, diabetes, stroke and pneumonia. Maintaining good oral health, whether you have crooked or straight teeth, is vital to your overall health; people with straight, aligned teeth traditionally have less trouble or problems with oral care.

If you suffer from bite problems, issues with your speech or the ability to chew properly; having straight, aligned teeth can often times resolve your oral problems. Jaw problems can also be diminished with teeth alignment procedures such as adult braces. When teeth are straight and bites are corrected there is less wear and tear on tooth enamel, which is important for maintaining good oral health. If you have been weighing the options of fixing that crooked smile, you can feel confident that straight teeth will provide the smile you have always wanted along with some added health benefits! Ask your dental professional about the different options for adult braces.

This dental practice is a gem! The front desk staff are kind, efficient and welcoming. I was pleasantly surprised at the clinical staff’s fantastic bedside manner. Everything was explained in advance and this was very appreciated. My teeth have never felt better! Love, love, love the hygienist that worked with me. She is a rockstar. Thank you to the whole gang!

I've been going to Crabapple dental for many years and I can honestly say Dr. Roberts and her team are by far the best. It's hard to find a good dentist that takes the time to get to know you and truly cares about your health. I knew Dr. Roberts was special when she filled a few cavities for me, then called me later that night to make sure I was ok. I feel at home when I'm there and they always treat me so well. Kelly is so wonderful! She takes her time and makes going to the dentist an easy task. I never stress about going because I know she'll take care of me. She is so pleasant and efficient; truly the best experience and I leave feeling great. Both Kelly and Dr. Roberts are so gentle and that is the most important thing to me. Dr. Roberts has the most updated equipment and beautiful office to give the best experience. I travel from downtown to see them because they are the best! Don't hesitate to make an appointment; you won't be disappointed!!

This is by far the most customer focused dental practice I’ve ever experienced. Starting with Dr Roberts and her entire staff! Immediately I felt I was a priority and my anxiety slowly disappeared. She has state of the art technology and is a pleasure to work with!! She contacted me after hours to check on me after certain procedures!! Highly recommend!!!! A very warm and nurturing environment!!
