Orthodontic treatment can prevent difficulties that arise with crooked and misaligned teeth. Teeth that overcrowd in the mouth are at a high risk for infection. Because it is difficult to clean between crooked teeth, plaque and bacteria can build up in the mouth. This can result in tooth decay and problems with the root canal and missing teeth. Combat problems caused by crooked teeth through the use of retainers. The first month of retainer use is especially the most critical because it keeps teeth that are prone to moving around straight and in line.
