Treatments For Crooked Teeth

Posted on 4/25/2022 by Premier Dental
Treatments For Crooked TeethOnly a few people's teeth are straight from birth. A little polish is responsible for the white, uniform aspect of celebrities' grins. When it comes to modifying someone's grin, it's frequently tough to identify what must be addressed and what isn't worth the effort. Crooked teeth are more than just an embarrassment to your self-esteem. Misaligned teeth might make your smile more appealing, but they can also have major health effects. Crooked teeth are difficult to clean, creating microscopic spaces that can provide a breeding ground for germs. This eventually results in dental decay, gum disease, and tooth loss. That is why it is critical to understand the origins and treatment of crooked teeth.

Crooked Teeth Causes

Teeth can shift and become crooked over time due to several reasons, including poor oral hygiene, genetics, and oral habits. A major factor is genetics. You inherit the size, shape, and even placement of your teeth. Genes also determine how large your mouth is. Having a naturally small mouth may prevent your teeth from growing straight, which results in crowding. Crouched teeth tend to overlap and shift. Childhood habits and behavior can affect your teeth throughout your life. Thumb sucking, pacifiers, mouth breathing, and tongue thrusting may cause your teeth to shift. As well as nail-biting and habitual chewing on objects such as pencils, nail-biting will affect shifting in young and older adults. Keeping your teeth from shifting after braces are removed can be difficult, which is why most orthodontics recommend wearing a retainer. 

The growth and emergence of your baby teeth foreshadow the development and emergence of your adult teeth. When you lose your baby teeth too soon because of dental decay, trauma, or gum disease, your permanent adult teeth may not emerge in a straight line. A facial injury might cause your teeth and jaw to move permanently. Take this into account, especially if you have an illness or accident that causes early tooth loss. To compensate for the loss of a tooth, the remaining teeth migrate towards the space left behind. If you have a terrible mouth, even one lost tooth might have an impact.

How Can They Be Fixed?

Modern orthodontic technology allows orthodontists to design a treatment plan that is tailored precisely to your needs. In addition to braces, clear aligners, retainers, and dental surgery, a dentist can propose treatments based on what's causing your crooked teeth. Children and adolescents benefit most from early intervention in childhood and adolescence at the lowest possible cost to you and your family. This ensures better overall oral health, proper function, and better well-being.
