Why Straight Teeth Matter

Clear Aligners Alpharetta GA

When looking at your own teeth or someone else’s smile, it is common to first notice alignment, or how straight the teeth are positioned next to each other. Crooked, overlapping and gapped teeth can be major threat to one’s smile appearance. But did you know that straight teeth aren’t just an aesthetic concern? Straight teeth matter for several reasons, including those that impact your quality of life as well as your dental health.

Minor gaps or a slightly crooked tooth may not be a big deal, except in terms of how you want your smile to look. However, there are orthodontic concerns that need to be corrected in order for you to achieve ideal comfort, functionality and health within your smile.

Orthodontic correction doesn’t have to occur during childhood or adolescence. Adults can get braces too. In fact, Crabapple Dental offers some of the most preferred braces options for adults, including Invisalign and Six Month Smiles.

By straightening your teeth as an adult, you can gain the following widespread advantages:

  • Improved confidence in your smile
  • Less difficulty speaking and eating
  • Fuller shape to your face
  • Better and more access to your teeth when brushing/flossing
  • Decreased risk for jaw problems/TMJ disorder

If your teeth are overlapping or crowded, the oral health benefit alone is enough to consider orthodontic correction. With the ability to clean your teeth and gums better, you’ll drastically reduce your risk for decay, infection, gum disease and bad breath.

If you have a smile that needs to be straightened, you’re not being “vain” by investing in orthodontic treatment. In fact, you are making a large deposit towards your everyday comfort and future dental health. Call Crabapple Dental today to learn more about our clear orthodontics with quick results!

I've been going to Dr. Roberts for a couple of years now (after a long period of not going to any dentist), and she has helped to bring my quickly developing periodontal disease under control. The staff is always professional and friendly there and they constantly use the most up to date technology. Great dentist! Aaron A.
Dr Roberts and her staff always go the extra mile for their clients. I can't say it's ever really fun to go to the dentist, but she's outstanding and really cares about helping you have a heathy mouth, not just pretty teeth. Jeremy R.
Dr. Sarah Roberts and her team (all of them) have given me the best experience I have had with a dental office. I have moved around a bit and out of the 4 offices I have gone to in the last 15 years, this is by far the best. I highly recommend. Ryan D.
