Lets have a Straight Talk about Crooked Teeth

Teeth that are not aligned properly create what we dentists call a malocclusion. Left untreated, malocclusion can lead to periodontal disease and can create abnormal amounts of stress on the teeth and jaws, which leads to premature wear and tear that will worsen over time.

In addition, it is difficult to remove plaque and bacteria found on misaligned teeth. This condition can cause gum inflammation, soft tissue damage, loose teeth, gum pockets around the teeth, bone loss and sometimes tooth loss.

What type of malocclusion do you have?

When your teeth are properly aligned, the benefits for your dental health are clear:

Healthier gums. It is easier to brush and floss properly aligned teeth, and the likelihood that pockets trapping bacteria will grow is lower.

Better hygiene. Straight teeth reduce plaque retention, cavities and the risk of gum disease.

Less wear and trauma. Correctly aligned teeth reduce the risk of chipping, fracture and tooth wear, all of which can be costly to repair. Proper alignment also reduces stress on the bone and jaw joints.
