Getting the Facts Straight: What Causes Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth. Overbites. Underbites. These are fairly common afflictions that prevent a lot of people from flashing perfect smiles.

Crooked teeth can interfere with proper chewing and make teeth cleaning more challenging, paving the way for faster decay and the spread of cavities and gingivitis in teeth. In addition, severely misaligned teeth can put a strain on jaws, muscles, and even teeth themselves, thus increasing the chances of broken teeth.

The Causes of Crooked Teeth

What exactly causes teeth to form in a crooked way? Let us straighten the facts. The specialists at Church Road Dental & Cosmetics weigh in on the facts and straighten out the causes of crooked teeth.

• Disease
A common cause of shifty, crooked teeth is gum disease. It especially impacts the placement of teeth when patients lose teeth, which often results in the shifting of remaining teeth.

• Genetics
Unfortunately, crooked teeth are an inherited trait, as well. If your parents have them, chances are high that you will have misaligned teeth, as well.

 Injury
Facial injuries can result in trauma, which in turn can shift teeth out of place. In most cases, severe facial trauma often causes the most.

The Treatments for Straightening Teeth

Braces are the most common treatment for misaligned teeth. One of the more popular choices today, however, is Invisalign treatment because, unlike braces, it is not visible yet highly effective at the same time. What this means for our patients is that flashing those pearly whites is possible once more, without anyone even noticing the presence of the aligners.
