3 Problems Caused by Crooked Teeth?
Hi there, Simon Deall from Central Coast Orthodontics here. Today I wanted to share with you the answer to a question that I hear daily in our specialist orthodontic practice and that is, could my crooked teeth cause other problems? So today I’m going to answer that with three main points.
Although most of the time crooked teeth are usually just an aesthetic issue and don’t actually cause a problem, there are bite issues that can in the long-term impact on your dental health.
There are other dental health problems that are difficult to show an evidence-based link with bite problems with certainty because they are caused by a combination of factors, for example, gum disease, jaw joint dysfunction and pain or difficulties with speech. So we can’t say with certainty that orthodontic treatment will definitely assist with these types of dental health problems, but what we can say confidently is that if you or your child don’t like smiling because of the appearance of your teeth whether they’re just crooked, have gaps, have a large overjet or overbite, then orthodontic treatment with braces or clear aligners such as Invisalign can help you start smiling with confidence again. This psychological benefit can’t be underestimated because a smile is the first thing we notice when we interact with someone whether it’s a stranger, friend or family member.
I really hope you’ve learnt something new in this short video. And if you or your child are experiencing these problems, we would love to look after you. Simply give us a call, complete the enquiry form on the website, or send us a direct message on social media, and we will help you organise your appointment. See you in the next video!
