Chewing is the first step for digestion. It also keeps your teeth cleaner by breaking the food down to allow swallowing. Your food is not suppose to stay stuck in your teeth, which can happen to patients with misalignments. Sometimes, it can go unnoticed which is harmful because it results in tooth decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. Straighter teeth breaks down food better. Now, of course, you’ll still need to brush and floss but proper chewing is essential and part of good oral hygiene.
