Important Facts About Crooked Teeth

Important Facts About Crooked Teeth

Despite how common the condition is, there are many misconceptions about malocclusion (the state of crooked teeth) and its effects on patients’ smiles and quality of life. The truth is, crooked teeth can affect nearly anyone, and understanding your options may help you save more than just your smile’s outward appearance. 

Some of the more important facts about crooked teeth involve how they develop and how to treat them, and many patients are pleased to learn that straightening their teeth may not even require braces!

They affect more than your smile’s appearance.

The most obvious side-effect of crooked teeth is how they make your smile look, which could negatively influence your overall self-confidence. Because of this effect, many people choose to straighten their teeth due to cosmetic reasons, but might also neglect treatment with braces for the same reason. 

The trouble is that crooked teeth aren’t just cosmetic; they can affect how well your bite functions and leave your teeth at greater risk of damage, decay, and more.

Even adult teeth can grow crooked.

Another common misconception is that crooked teeth always develop in early childhood, and only last into adulthood if the condition isn’t treated. However, even adults who have never experienced malocclusion can develop crooked teeth from issues such as tooth loss, chronic teeth-grinding (bruxism), impacted wisdom teeth, or more.

You may not need braces to straighten crooked teeth.

If you do exhibit crooked teeth, then your dentist might suggest wearing braces to correct their alignment. However, if you worry about how braces may affect your daily life, then your dentist might recommend Invisalign® clear braces—a system of virtually invisible aligners that fit comfortably over your teeth. 

With the help of Invisalign®, you can enjoy a straighter, healthier, and more attractive smile without the inconvenience and potential embarrassment of traditional metal braces!

If your teeth are crooked, then you should learn as much as you can about why and about your options for correcting them. To learn more, schedule a visit today by calling our dental office in Sunnyvale, CA at (408) 720-0900.
