Not every patients teeth are perfect. A lot of people think that the only reason to see an orthodontist is for a more aesthetically pleasing smile. However, there are many other benefits to properly aligned teeth. ALIGN is the process of bringing the teeth into an order of symmetry or alignment within the mouth.
The goal of having aligned teeth is achieving the balance and function of the teeth, muscles, and jaw. What this means is that your teeth should align perfectly together and distribute evenly throughout your mouth, as opposed to them being misaligned. Achieving symmetric tooth alignment is what orthodontic treatments such as braces or clear dental aligners are meant to do.
Alignment issues, if untreated, can have serious consequences, including tooth decay, gum disease, and even speech related problems.
