There are many health benefits to straight teeth as well. Poorly aligned teeth are difficult to keep clean and the chance of developing decay and gum disease is increased. Also, proper alignment of teeth, jaws and the jaw joint minimize the possibility of damaging these structures, which could lead to facial pain and headache. A bad bite can also make chewing difficult and can contribute to digestive disorders.
