Well, the same thing happens with your teeth, having misaligned teeth helps the accumulation of tartar and food. It also impedes that the toothbrush cleans efficiently all your teeth.

4) Less tooth deterioration

If your teeth are in a good position, your bite will be correct, so there will be no deterioration. When teeth are malpositioned, it makes them clash each other, causing deterioration, a problem that can lead to caries (due to loss of enamel), SENSITIVE TEETH, and mobility of teeth, among other problems.

Physical benefits

5) Back, head and ear pain

Misplaced teeth cause more pressure in the entire mouth area, thus causing the muscles adjacent to the area to tense as well. Remember that everything in our body is intimately connected. When the mouth is tightened, the neck is tightened, therefore the cervicals, and consequently the back. There are many patients who report that by solving their dental problems, their ear, head and back aches are significantly reduced.
