Having a straight smile isn’t just important for cosmetic purposes. The way your teeth are aligned can also affect your dental health on the whole. Read on to learn more about the connection!
What Causes Crooked Teeth?
Crooked teeth often develop at an early age. Whether teeth shift into odd angles due to excessive pacifier or thumb sucking, genetically smaller mouths, misaligned jaws, or dental trauma, crooked teeth can damage one’s confidence and ability to maintain good oral health.
Health Reasons for Why You Should Straighten Crooked Teeth
Depending on how your teeth have grown in, crooked teeth can make it difficult to properly brush and floss since there will be more of those hard-to-reach nooks and crannies. This means it’s easier for bacteria and cavities to multiply, causing cavities and gum disease. Crooked teeth can also cause excessive wear and uneven pressure between your upper and lower teeth, which may result in headaches and difficulty chewing.
