Do your crooked teeth keep you from smiling?
Crooked teeth may be embarrassing, but did you know crooked teeth can also create a complex and painful bite disorder? Crooked teeth are often an underlying cause of a misalignment in the bite creating stress in the jaw joint. Patients with crooked teeth may experience painful symptoms associated with TMD, temporomandibular joint disorder.
Addressing crooked teeth can relieve tension by bringing the jaw joint back into proper alignment. Patients with crooked teeth often benefit from orthodontics but can be treated using cosmetic procedures for less advanced maloclussion.
Crooked teeth can increase your risk of:
- Tooth decay
- Tooth loss
- Bite misalignment
- Chronic headaches
