Light was flooding through a bank of windows overlooking a strip-mall parking lot and a highway in Siloam Springs, near the Oklahoma border. Seven occupied chairs sat beside seven computer terminals. Technicians — young, all female, each wearing matching slim-cut pink scrubs — were whirling back and forth from the overflowing waiting room to the chairs to a giant island in the middle of the room, where they gathered hardware, chatted, and gooped huge blops of alginate for various orthodontic impressions.

When deciding to wear braces or dental aligners, patients have one goal in mind: they want to smile with confidence. But do you ever stop to think, why is having straight teeth actually important? Patients with crowded or spaced teeth often face inflammation or redness of the gums, both signs of periodontal disease. Having straight teeth means your gums fit securely around your teeth, which protects you from periodontal problems. Straight teeth make it easier to clean your teeth; with unevenly spaced teeth, and sometimes in the case of metal braces or brackets, food might get stuck in unreachable crevices.
