Malocclusion and Periodontitis

malocclusion and periodontitis - centre de santé dentaire sourires exquis

The malocclusion created by crooked and overlapped teeth has a significant impact on your periodontal health, as it is difficult to brush and floss properly to remove plaque.

Periodontal disease can start with redness and bleeding gums, while brushing your teeth or using dental floss, and you may notice bad breath.

Bacteria can cause degradation, including inflammation of the gum around the tooth, and if left untreated it will lead to bone loss.

Misaligned teeth can also create stress and abnormal pressure on the jaws. Teeth subjected to excessive force may develop flaking and notches near the gum, called abfractions.

Premature wear and tear can lead to poor root support, loose teeth and ultimately tooth loss.

If you or a loved one would like to meet Dr. Christine Hindié, general dentist on the Plateau Mont-Royal in Montreal, for an Invisalign consultation please call or e-mail us today.
