The Importance of Straight Teeth

Crooked or gapped teeth undoubtedly affect your smile appearance. However, straight teeth offer far more than desirable aesthetics. Teeth that are well-spaced and aligned are also healthier. This is due to the fact that crooked or crowded teeth are harder to keep clean. In addition, straight teeth help your jaw to function properly. Misalignment can put unnecessary strain on certain jaw muscles, putting you at risk for TMJ discomfort down the road. To boost your smile appearance and protect your oral health, consider straightening your teeth with Dr. Blalock in St. Peters.

Cardinal Dental offers orthodontics for teens and adults who are good candidates. We always pursue the latest technology and techniques in modern dentistry, which often means safer, faster and more comfortable treatments for our patients.
