Why Treat Crooked Teeth?
Aside from cosmetic reasons, when the teeth are not properly aligned, it can lead to jaw pain, discomfort, and worn teeth. Certain teeth may receive more pressure than others, causing the teeth to weaken over time. Malocclusion (misalignment of the bite) can be caused by a range of dental concerns from chipped or misshaped teeth to misaligned teeth.
Patients with a misaligned bite are at an increased risk of experiencing teeth grinding. Patients who grind their teeth may experience symptoms like headaches, jaw pain, and broken teeth. When crooked teeth are left untreated, it can lead to more complex dental issues in the future.
