Why are crooked teeth a problem?
- Teeth that are not aligned properly in your mouth create what dentists call “malocclusion.” Left untreated, malocclusion can lead to periodontal disease and create abnormal amounts of stress on teeth and jaws, which leads to premature wear.
What’s the solution?
- Straightening your teeth can make a significant difference to having a healthy mouth and keeping your teeth for life. Ask your doctor about straightening your teeth using Invisalign, a set of clear aligners that are custom-made to gradually straighten your teeth.
