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: Interfere with proper chewing and pronunciation of words. Make teeth prone to many dental diseases, increasing the risk of tooth decay, cavities and gingivitis. Strain the teeth, jaws, and muscles, increasing the risk of breaking a tooth. Make people feel uncomfortable or embarrassed about their appearance and affect their self-esteem. What treatments are available to correct crooked teeth and misaligned bites? Various orthodontic and cosmetic treatments are available for crooked/misaligned teeth, and differ according to the degree of misalignment affecting tooth structure and facial form. After proper diagnosis and recommendation of treatment, our experienced dentist can recommend you the most appropriate choice for treatment in your case.
