The Dental Health Risks from Crooked Teeth

Crooked or misaligned teeth are quite common, but for some people it may impact on their dental health. Your dentist can advise on the treatment options available to correct alignment issues.

Key takeaways:

  • Crooked teeth are harder to clean thoroughly, leading to a buildup of bacteria which increases the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Having crooked teeth can result in a misaligned bite, placing you at increased risk of pain and discomfort from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
  • A misaligned bite can make chewing difficult and uncomfortable.

If you have crooked teeth, talk to your dentist about orthodontic options (braces) that can give you straight teeth quickly — and that are often barely noticeable.
