Crooked teeth can create both cosmetic and oral health concerns. Crooked teeth can lead to tooth decay and even tooth loss and may make the patient feel self-conscious about sharing their smile. Patients can benefit from straightening their teeth at any age. Straighter teeth allow for a more confident smile. Beautiful, healthy smiles help patients interact more successfully both professionally and personally.
Treating crooked teeth can feel overwhelming for some adult patients. Emerald Isle dentist Dr. Aubrey Myers offers cosmetic and restorative treatment options for correcting the appearance of crooked teeth. A highly trained and experienced dentist, Dr. Myers practices complete dentistry as a graduate of the Dawson Academy. Our dental care team provides a thorough bite analysis and seeks to identify and treat the root of your dental concerns for more stable and lasting oral health.
Why Should Adults Straighten Their Teeth?
We often hear adult patients saying things along the lines of, “why bother now?” The reality is that crooked teeth may be the cause of other oral health concerns. Crooked teeth can affect the comfort and function of your bite as well as your sense of confidence in your smile. In areas where teeth overlap, tartar and plaque can build-up quickly. Crooked teeth are often difficult to clean effectively, increasing your risk for the development of tooth decay and gum disease.
Crooked teeth can affect the alignment of the bite and lead to complex TMJ disorders. A temporomandibular disorder (TMD) occurs when the jaw joint and muscles are damaged or working improperly. TMD is associated with chronic facial pain, popping and clicking of the jaw and frequent headaches. Treating crooked teeth can realign the bite and help to alleviate TMD.
