When you decide on going through orthodontics, you may not realize you’re doing more than just straightening your teeth. The braces procedure, of course corrects misalignment, but also provides your oral cavity with better hygiene.
When you have straightened teeth, you have a better chance of reaching all of the places that should be cleaned. Brushing and flossing when your teeth are not misaligned is easier because you’re not working around teeth. When your teeth are misaligned, you could risk having plaque or tartar build up in between the crooked teeth, which could cause tooth decay and gum diseases.
