There are two things that can really hurt a person’s smile: discolored and crooked teeth. Even if your teeth are perfectly healthy, discoloration or crookedness may still prevent you from putting your best foot forward when you smile.
Causes of Crooked Teeth
Crooked teeth can be caused by a number of different reasons, including:
- Mouth is too small, which crowds the teeth
- Upper and lower jaws aren’t the same size
- Early loss of baby teeth
- Improper fit of dental restorations
- Gum disease
- Thumb sucking as a child
- And so much more!
Problems associated with Crooked Teeth
Unfortunately, crooked teeth are more than just an aesthetic annoyance. They can also cause more serious issues, including:
- Increasing the risk of tooth decay, cavities, and gingivitis
- Interfering with proper chewing
- Making oral hygiene difficult
- Increasing the risk of breaking a tooth
- Leading to discoloration
- And more
