Teeth straightening early

Teeth straightening is very important. Most orthodontists recommend that you straighten your teeth as a teenager so that you can avoid complications in the future. It is easier to straighten teeth when you are younger rather than as an adult, later on in life. In adults the jawbone is more dense and the teeth become fixed into the jaw, which makes it harder to move the teeth. In children and teenagers, the bones are still growing so the jawbone is not as dense making it easier to move teeth. Therefore, undergoing orthodontic treatment early helps make treatment easier, quicker, and more effective with a better choice of treatment options.
