If you’ve spent countless hours daydreaming about having a straight and beautiful smile, perhaps you should learn more about various teeth straightening Ladysmith solutions. Aside from being a source of embarrassment, crooked teeth can also cause a wide range of problems that can have a massive impact on your oral and overall health.
The bristles of your toothbrush and dental floss won’t be able to reach certain areas between your crooked teeth. This can be good news for bacteria that feed on the food particles that are stuck in those hard-to-reach areas.
Since misaligned teeth are difficult to brush, it would be easier for bacteria to buildup and form plaque on your teeth. As plaque clings to your teeth it weakens the integrity of your enamel. This will eventually lead to tooth decay and gum disease. If gum disease is left unaddressed, this can potentially cause damage to your jawbone and result in tooth loss.
Teeth that are crooked tend to rub against the other teeth while you’re chewing your food. This constant friction between one tooth and another can result in undue wear of your tooth enamel. This can make your teeth more vulnerable to cracking and breakage. Additionally, can cause chronic headaches, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, and jaw strain.
Your jaw alignment is hampered by protruding upper and lower teeth. This misalignment makes chewing more difficult. Unless you decide to get your teeth straightened, your crooked teeth may cause digestion problems and poor nutrient absorption.
If you have crooked teeth, don’t be surprised if you have bad breath. This can result from your crooked teeth’s susceptibility to the buildup of bacteria on and between them.
Whether you like it or not, crooked teeth can significantly affect your self-esteem. They make you uncomfortable each time you find yourself in a social situation.
