Health Alert: The Downsides of Crooked Teeth | The Hills Orthodontics

Improve Your Health and Smile with The Hills Orthodontics

Are you considering orthodontic treatment to straighten your teeth? Besides boosting your confidence, straightening your teeth can have significant benefits for your overall health. Many people are unaware that oral health plays a crucial role in overall well-being. Poor oral hygiene can increase the risk of various health issues, including stroke, heart disease, and more. Crooked teeth can make it challenging to maintain proper oral hygiene, leading to an increased risk of several ailments. Here are some common issues exacerbated by crooked teeth, and how orthodontic care from The Hills Orthodontics can help:

Gum Disease
Crooked teeth are more difficult to clean effectively compared to straight teeth. Without proper brushing and flossing, plaque buildup increases, raising the risk of gum disease. Untreated gum disease can progress to gingivitis and periodontal disease, which is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Additionally, inflamed gums can allow bacteria to enter the bloodstream, increasing the risk of stroke, heart disease, and other health problems. Our orthodontic solutions can correct misaligned teeth, making it easier for you to maintain good oral hygiene.

Crooked teeth or an improper bite can contribute to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). While teeth clenching and grinding are common causes of TMD, a misaligned bite may also play a role. TMD can cause jaw soreness, clicking sounds while chewing, headaches, and facial pain. Correcting a misaligned bite can help alleviate these symptoms.

Enamel Erosion
Enamel is the protective outer coating of your teeth, shielding them from damage. Crooked teeth and misaligned bites can cause teeth grinding, leading to enamel erosion. This erosion can result in tooth discoloration, increased sensitivity, and cracks or chips in the teeth. While drinking water, avoiding acidic foods, and maintaining good oral hygiene can help protect enamel, orthodontic treatment may be necessary to address the underlying issue.
