Hate Having Crooked Teeth? Here's What You Can Do

We don’t all have crooked teeth at birth, but they can get that way over time. As we age, our teeth might shift, which is unpleasant since misaligned teeth can interfere with maintaining proper oral hygiene and lower our confidence. In this article, we share some strategies with you so that you can feel more comfortable smiling whether you’ve had uneven teeth for a long time or just recently.

Symptoms Of Crooked Teeth


Each case of crowded or crooked teeth might be unique; the severity ranges from moderate to severe. When you grin, it might be easier to perceive the severe cases, which are frequently easier to notice. The following signs and symptoms of misalignment might affect your oral health:


  • Build-up of plaque
  • Gum disease and tooth decay
  • An overbite or underbite
  • Migraines and jaw pain


Causes Of Crooked Teeth


When it comes to the causes of crooked or crowded teeth, there are several contributing variables, such as:


  • Genetic factors
  • The aftermath of an accident
  • Thumb sucking for a prolonged period of time
  • Oral health issues
  • Dental infection

How Do You Treat Crooked Teeth?


There are various options you may consider with one of our trained dentists or orthodontists if you feel that straightening your teeth is the best option for you.


If the teeth and gums can support the braces, persons of any age can consider getting them. Children, whose gums and bone structures are still elastic and supple, may benefit the most from braces.


Depending on the type of braces you select and the work you need done, treatment may take two to three years. Another choice to think about is teeth-straightening surgery, which often produces effects more quickly.



How much does treatment for crooked teeth cost?


Depending on your teeth and the treatment approach chosen to align them, the cost of correcting crooked teeth will change. Treatment objectives, treatment duration, and your present dental structure can all be determining factors. During your consultation appointment, your dentist or orthodontist will suggest the course of treatment that is most appropriate for you, as well as provide you with a cost estimate and payment schedule.


Are braces painful?


Wearing braces on your teeth doesn’t hurt. The few days after each adjustment visit may be uncomfortable due to pressure. This is a fully natural symptom that your teeth are changing into a straighter position as a result of the braces. Your symptoms should subside as your mouth gets used to the braces. 


Could adults get braces?


Yes. You have a number of options for straightening your crooked teeth, including conventional braces or even Invisalign, which utilises transparent, cosy aligners that you can remove. Seek guidance from your dentist or orthodontist on how to correct your teeth.


Do your crooked teeth need to be straightened?


You will frequently seek orthodontic treatment to improve your smile and straighten your teeth if they are very crooked. Ultimately, a crowded mouth can exacerbate oral health issues including gum disease and tooth decay.


Going to the dentist makes me anxious
