Teeth properly aligner are easier to maintain. You are able to floss readily and food doesn't trap in places that it shouldn't. If you can't floss because your teeth are too tight, gums can get inflamed causing eventual bone erosion, and teeth can then become loose due to the lack of support. The National Institutes of Health reported that over 50% of adults over the age of 30 have some form of periodontal disease! Straight teeth help to prevent tooth loss from periodontal disease. More than 30 million Americans do not have ANY teeth reports the American College of Prosthodontists.
