If you are one of the many people who have crooked, cramped or gapped teeth, then it is likely you have considered some kind of treatment in order to straighten them. Professional treatment does tend to be expensive and unfortunately, many people put off this kind of care believing it to be purely aesthetic and that cosmetic treatment is more of a luxury than anything else.
In regards to the health of your smile, straight teeth is not just a cosmetic issue however, with cramped and crooked teeth impacting the health of your teeth and gums. The biggest cause for concern is where teeth cross over or are closely packed together it is more difficult to clean.
