What are some problems that can occur with crooked teeth?

With crooked teeth, you are more likely to experience:

  • Tooth decay (cavities)
  • Worn out, broken fillings or crowns
  • Gum disease
  • TMJ disorders

How Do Crooked Teeth Cause These Problems?

When your teeth are not aligned properly, they can be more difficult to clean, which can lead to an increased risk of cavities and gum disease. Crooked teeth can also cause your bite to be off, putting extra pressure on your teeth and fillings. In time, this will cause them to wear down or even break.

Misaligned teeth can also cause pain and disorders with your jaw joint (TMJ.) When your teeth don’t line up properly, this causes your TMJ to be displaced when you’re biting or chewing, since your teeth don’t fit together as they should.

Options for Straightening Your Smile

At Brackets Wires and Smiles, we offer metal and clear braces. We also offer clear aligners to straighten your teeth, which are removable and essentially “invisible.” Adults make great candidates for most types of braces, especially because they are committed to caring for their smile and following treatment recommendations.
