Having straight teeth and a good bite can help to keep your teeth and gums healthy, increase your self-confidence, and give you a winning smile! Crooked and overlapping teeth are difficult to keep clean and might lead to cavities and gum disease. A misaligned bite can make chewing difficult, wear your teeth excessively, and put undue strain on your jaw muscles. As an orthodontist I take great pleasure in explaining to my patients and their parents how straightening their teeth and correcting their bite can benefit them. - Dr Anthea Resnick, Orthodontist at Melville Kids Dentistry.
