Many people may hide their smile because they are embarrassed about their crooked teeth. If a person’s mouth is too small, their teeth may crowd and shift, becoming uneven. Crooked teeth may also be part of inherited traits that are passed on through generations.
Why Straighten Teeth?
However, crooked teeth can be corrected by oral health professionals. Some may ask why crooked teeth need correction. There are multiple reasons that your oral health may become compromised due to crooked and misaligned teeth:
Because they can be relatively difficult to clean, crooked teeth are a risk factor. Areas between teeth may be prone to cavities and tooth decay if not effectively cleaned.
When people bite with crooked teeth, their bite is uneven. Over time, this can cause teeth to crack and chip, compromising tooth structure and deteriorating a person’s oral health.
Bite balance can also be affected by crooked teeth. Crooked teeth may be a risk factor when it comes to teeth grinding and TMD, a group of conditions associated with joint and tooth pain.
Dr. Brent Engelberg & Associates offer treatments that are free from the irritation and uncomfortable nature of traditional metal braces. Explore your treatment options below:
This treatment uses clear aligners that can be worn during the day or at night. The aligners straighten teeth and offer a great alternative to traditional metal braces.
Veneers are thin, custom-fit shells that cover the front of teeth. They change teeth shape for a more stable and straight appearance.
Dental crowns encase a misshapen or damaged tooth and provide added support. Crowns also restore the appearance of teeth so that they are straighter and more properly aligned.
Using adhesive and a special curing light, a resin is bonded to teeth in this procedure. The resin is shaped and polished for a bright and white new smile.
These are the multiple treatment options that we offer at AH Smiles to correct teeth and give our patients the gift of lasting smiles that are straighter and brighter than ever before.
