When teeth aren't properly aligned, they can have a negative impact on your oral health:
- Crowded teeth are more difficult to clean meaning that plaque may build up and harden, leading to an increased risk of tooth decay and gum disease developing.
- A misaligned bite can result in teeth grinding and a painful temperomandibular joint (TMJ), along with pain, headaches and even problems with speaking or chewing.
- Crooked teeth can influence your risk for gum disease, tooth decay, and jaw discomfort.
Your dentist or orthodontist will be happy to discuss treatment options for misaligned bites and crooked teeth. Read the full story here: https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/how-misaligned-teeth-affect-your-oral-health/
