Crooked or misaligned teeth affect your life in many ways. Besides the toll it takes on your confidence when you smile or talk to other people, it also affects your oral health. Crooked teeth are harder to keep clean, which increases your risk of tooth decay and gum disease. A misaligned bite can contribute to a jaw disorder known as TMJ, and put your teeth at risk for damage and fractures. The good news is Houston Uptown Dentists can straighten your smile, even if you don’t want to wear traditional metal brackets. Here are some options for a straighter smile with clear braces in Houston.
