Why teeth alignment is important?
This is for those people who are comfortable with their distorted teeth and don’t find any requirement of getting them corrected. If you think that your crooked tooth gives you a cute appeal, you would want to get rid of that cuteness when that crooked tooth starts giving you headaches, or difficulty in speaking, chewing food and so on. Just know what we have to say before deciding to ignore that crooked tooth.
Misaligned teeth are hard to clean
When your teeth overlap, it becomes a tough job for your toothbrush to reach all the corners. This compromises the oral hygiene regimen and leads to dental problems such as dental decay and gum diseases such as gingivitis or periodontitis. Even procedures such as a root canal treatment become difficult and result in eventual tooth loss.
Misaligned teeth cause jaw joint problems
Your malformed teeth might cause anything in between clicking or popping of your jaw joint to pain and tenderness in it. Earaches, headaches and painful chewing are some of the advanced symptoms of temporomandibular/jaw joint disorder. In fact, your jaw might become locked and you might not be able to move your jaw at all. Surgical intervention might be required to make your jaws functional again.
Speech and mastication problems
Misshapen teeth not only interfere with your speech, giving you a lisp but also make chewing difficult and painful. Well-aligned teeth fit well upon each other and do not face such complications.
Chipped teeth and restorations it might surprise you to know that misaligned teeth can cause their opposite tooth to chip or crack. Moreover, such teeth can cause dental restorations especially veneers to chip and dislodge.
If you have difficulty in closing your mouth, most probably our teeth are interfering with it. An orthodontic treatment is required to align your teeth to help with the closure of your mouth. Otherwise, mouth breathing can cause a host of dental problems such as long face syndrome in children.
Last but not the least, everybody loves a great smile. So if your misaligned teeth are stopping you from living your life to the fullest, just visit us at Calismile orthodontics to get that dazzling smile you have always wanted.
