Crooked teeth have been linked to several more serious such as tooth decay, cavities, tooth loss, gum disease, and even stroke.
Good news is that crooked teeth are easily fixed if taken care of promptly. However, if you decide to wait, it may end up costing you more time and money in the future. Let’s take a look at the issues that crooked teeth can cause if left untreated.
Crooked Teeth Problems
- Tooth Decay / Cavities
- Crooked teeth are much more difficult to clean than straight teeth, as crooked teeth will create hard to reach spaces, overlapping teeth, gaps, crevices, and harder to reach spaces that will allow bacteria a place to hide and grow. This bacteria will advance to plaque, and will ultimately advance to tooth decay and cavities, with the result being tooth loss.
- Confidence Crusher
- Crooked teeth can be something that is discouraging for you daily. You may not even realize it, but you may be hiding your smile by avoiding talking to someone or not volunteering to do a presentation at work due to being embarrassed by your crooked teeth. Do not let your crooked teeth win, take back control of your life, and let your smile shine.
- Bad Breath
- Chances are if you are embarrassed by your crooked teeth and the way they look, you are mortified by how they can smell.
