Straight teeth are not just a question of aesthetics. Having properly aligned teeth can also improve your dental and overall health as crooked and misaligned teeth are more susceptible to cavities and gum disease, and can lead to further issues in the future. To avoid further problems down the line, it is also advisable to start treatment at an early age, although all of our treatment options are suitable for adults and children.
Whatever your issue or age, our orthodontic specialists at Avenue Dental Specialty Group can help you achieve a straighter smile and improved dental health through a variety of options.
Why Straight Teeth Are So Important
Unless you are one of the lucky people born with a perfectly straight set of teeth – yes, they do exist! – you will want to correct any misaligned or crooked teeth with the help of orthodontic treatment. It is also recommended to start treatment at a young age. The reason behind it is pretty simple: misaligned or crooked teeth can negatively impact your overall dental health and, over the course of time, more and worse issues, ranging from more frequently occurring cavities to gum disease and ultimately broken and decaying teeth. So the sooner you get started, the less problems your teeth will give you in the future!
What Issues Orthodontics Can Address
But orthodontics does not only address and fix crooked or misaligned teeth. In fact, orthodontics can fix a variety of dental issues, including:
- over-, under- or cross bites
- crowded teeth and spacing
- protruding upper teeth
- chewing or biting problems
It is a good idea to have your teeth and jaw examined by an orthodontist as early as possible so that problems can be addressed while they are just small and before they can cause more severe difficulties and health problems in the future.
Treatment for Adults
While it is certainly true that orthodontic treatment should be ideally sought at a young age to prevent more severe issues, it is certainly never too late to correct your natural teeth.

We recommend consulting with one of our orthodontic specialists to see what treatment options are available to you.
