Can Misaligned Teeth Be More Damaging Than You Realise?

Misaligned teeth, if not corrected, can lead to further serious health issues. You dentist will be able to inform you if your teeth are misaligned and advise you on how to correct them.

Key takeaways:

– Oral issues such as gum inflammation, gum recession and tooth sensitivity can result from a misaligned bite.

-Teeth which are crooked are difficult to clean, increasing the chance of gum disease and tooth decay.

-Your jaw may try to compensate for a misaligned bite and this can lead to headaches and migraines.

“Uneven wear on crooked teeth can cause tooth sensitivity. When certain teeth are worn down more than the others, this can lead to exposed dentin, the softer tissue beneath tooth enamel.”
