Orthodontics & Dentofacial Orthopedics is one of the branches of dentistry that looks to correct teeth and jaws that are positioned improperly. This practice of dentistry includes the treatment of malocclusion of teeth. Crooked teeth, not aligned teeth and teeth that do not come together correctly are harder to keep clean - which makes them at risk of being lost earlier than normal due to tooth decay and periodontal disease.   Part of this more stress on the chewing muscles that can lead to headaches, neck and TMJ syndrome. 

Also, crooked teeth  or teeth not in the right place can also detract from one's appearance.

There are many benefits to getting orthodontic treatment.  This includes a healthier mouth and a more pleasing appearance. Also, can help with teeth overall longevity.
