Misaligned Teeth / Crooked Teeth
There’s a simple fact about a great smile – having straight and crystal clear teeth. Everyone loves to flaunt his/her sparkling teeth. In order to achieve beautiful shiny, white teeth, almost all people are ready to transform their awful looking, crooked teeth, broken and stained teeth into straight and beautifully looking teeth.
What are crooked teeth and misaligned bites?
There are several reasons why some people’s teeth grow in crooked, overlapping, or twisted manner. Some patients’ mouths are too small to accommodate their overly grown teeth, and this causes them to shift their position. In other cases, a person’s upper and lower jaws aren’t the same size or are malformed, resulting in either an overbite, or an under bite.
Problems associated with crooked teeth and misaligned bites:
Crooked teeth and misaligned bites can:

An orthodontic brace is the individual metal appliance or ‘bracket’ that is placed on a single tooth bound by wire, and each tooth has a bracket bonded onto its surface. A metal wire passes through these brackets to keep the braces on teeth properly aligned. Braces is a collective term for the brackets and wires all engaged upon the crooked teeth keep them aligned and cause tooth movement in the desired direction and precise position.
