The Importance of Straight Teeth

Smiles for Kids Dentistry & Orthodontics specializes in pediatric dentistry and orthodontics. We help your child achieve a more perfectly aligned smile so that they can enjoy a lifetime of benefits of straight teeth.

Benefits of Straight Teeth

Research shows the people perceive individuals with straight, white teeth as more confident and successful. So, having healthy, bright and straight teeth is important to how your child is seen and treated…and how they feel about themselves. A perfectly aligned smile boosts confidence.

Yet, the benefits of a straight smile do not end with looks. Having straight teeth allows your child to avoid oral health issues that can result from misaligned teeth, such as:

  • Plaque and tartar buildup in pockets created by crooked teeth
  • Accelerated tooth decay resulting from plaque and bacteria buildup
  • Swollen gums and gum disease
  • Uneven wear on tooth surfaces, chips and fractures
  • Difficulty chewing or talking, jaw pain, headaches

Correcting dentition alignment during childhood lays the foundation for a lifetime of oral health.
