I know that getting braces for crooked

Written by Dr. Chaw Su Kyi on January 7, 2010

I know that getting braces for crooked teeth is good from an aesthetic standpoint, but are there any medical reasons to get your teeth straightened?

One of the benefits of having straighter teeth is that it’s easier to keep them clean. Often food and plaque can get trapped between crooked teeth and flossing may be more difficult. This may increase your risk of having gum disease or tooth decay.
