Oral Health Concerns That Can Be Caused By Crooked Teeth
- Easier to Clean
- With straighter teeth, it is so much easier to maintain a healthy, and clean smile. When your teeth are straight and even, it is much easier to clean and floss, and a straighter smile also provides fewer crevices for food or debris to hide.
- Tooth Decay, Cavities & Gum Disease
- Gum disease is also known as gingivitis, which is a serious issue that should not be ignored. If left untreated, it can lead to infection, soft tissue damage, receding gums, and bone and tooth loss.
- Bad Breath (Halitosis)
- Bad breath which is medically called halitosis can also be a serious issue. Bad breath will continue to be an issue with crooked teeth, and it gives food and debris places to settle within your teeth, and almost impossible to clean on your own.
- Unnecessary Tooth Damage
- Crooked teeth can also cause unnecessary age to your teeth and gums because of all the extra wear and tear it causes. This means more chipping of your teeth and more flattened and worn teeth. You might be saving yourself money and time in the dentist chair by not getting your crooked teeth fixed now, but in the long run, you will actually be spending more time and money fixing all the damage they cause.
