Problems caused by crooked or misaligned teeth

In more serious cases, crooked teeth and misaligned bites can be the causes of other oral health problems, such as:

Periodontal disease

This refers to an infection that can damage the teeth, gum tissue, and jawbone. It usually stems from gum disease. Because crooked teeth may be hard to clean properly, dental misalignment may easily lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Digestive/chewing issues

When the top and bottom rows of your teeth do not properly come together when you chew, digestive problems may arise. Realigning crooked teeth can solve many chewing issues.

Excessive/uneven wear

Oral health issues such as cracked teeth, jaw strain, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder and headaches can stem from untreated crooked teeth.

Other common problems include:

  • Speech difficulties
  • Low self-esteem
  • Overbite
  • Bad breath

How crooked/misaligned teeth are corrected

There are several ways our dentists can help straighten crooked teeth. Depending on the severity of the misalignment, we may recommend one of the following procedures:

Retainers

Retainers are usually used to maintain teeth alignment after the use of braces.

Metal Braces

Fixed metal braces are attached to the teeth with bands, brackets, and flexible wire that pull your teeth back where they should be inside your mouth. These braces have come a long way since they were first introduced; nowadays they are much more comfortable and easy to manipulate.

Clear Aligners

Meant for teens and adults, these clear plastic aligners are custom-made for your mouth, and fit over your teeth like a mouthguard to gently force your teeth back into their proper positions. Learn More

Palatal Expander

If your child’s mouth is too small for their emerging adult tooth, a palatal expander can help widen the arch of their upper jaw and prevent tooth overcrowding.

Frequently asked questions about crooked teeth

What causes uneven or crooked teeth?

There are many factors that can lead to misaligned teeth. These include:

 

  • Genetics: According to the U.S. National Library of Medicine, jaw size and teeth alignment are often inherited from parents. Having small jaws and large teeth, for example, may lead to misaligned teeth due to overcrowding.
  • Childhood habits: Thumb-sucking, tongue-thrusting, breathing with an open mouth, or heavy use of a pacifier may contribute to improper teeth positioning.
  • Early loss of baby teeth: When baby teeth are lost too early, emerging adult teeth may slide into the wrong positions.
  • Poor oral hygiene: Cavities that lead to tooth infections and ultimate loss of teeth can result in teeth shifting alignment.
  • Malnutrition: Poor nutrition may easily lead to tooth decay, incorrect dental alignment, and other health issues.
  • Malocclusion: A medical condition when your upper and lower jaw do not align.
    Trauma: Injuries to the face can cause crooked teeth.
How do I know if I need to do something about my crooked teeth?
Straightening crooked teeth is a personal decision. Sometimes, crooked teeth can add uniqueness and personality to a person’s smile. However, if you suffer from health concerns or self-esteem issues due to crooked teeth, it may be a good idea to talk to us about possible options to fix uneven teeth.
What should I expect when I see a dentist for crooked teeth?
First, your teeth, jaw, bite, and gums will be examined. This helps us know what is causing your teeth to be crooked. Then, our dentists will ask about your medical history, symptoms you may be suffering, and how your jaw is feeling. Finally, x-rays are taken. From there, we’ll discuss the best options for you.
