Straight Up: It's Never Too Late For Orthodontic Treatment.
The eyes may be the windows of the soul, but a radiant smile is guaranteed to be the first thing anyone notices about you. And first impressions are everything. It's been said that the average person smiles around 20 times a day. For those who feel self-conscious about their teeth, that's 20 times too many.
Having crooked teeth not only knocks a person's overall confidence and self-esteem, leaving them embarrassed and reluctant to smile at all, it can pose other health concerns, according to the Canadian Dental Association.
Crowded or crooked teeth can make oral cleaning a challenge, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum (periodontal) disease.
Protruding teeth can affect your ability to speak and chew, increasing wear on enamel, even leading to potential tooth loss or injury. Having misaligned teeth puts undue stress on the jaw bones and gums, which in turn can cause chronic headaches and neck pain
