Consequences of Untreated Crooked Teeth

When left untreated, crooked teeth can lead to many consequences that can affect your oral health and overall well-being. Understanding these potential issues is crucial to recognizing the importance of seeking timely treatment.

  • Difficulties in cleaning: Misaligned teeth make proper cleaning challenging, increasing the risk of plaque buildup, tooth decay, and gum disease.
  • Uneven wear: Crooked teeth can cause abnormal wear patterns, making certain teeth more susceptible to damage and sensitivity.
  • Speech issues: Misaligned teeth make it difficult to articulate certain sounds. 
  • Jaw pain and TMJ disorders: Crooked teeth can disrupt jaw alignment, leading to TMJ disorders, which cause jaw pain, clicking sounds, headaches, and limited jaw movement.
  • Increased risk of dental injuries: Crooked teeth are more prone to chips, fractures, and injuries during activities such as sports or eating.
  • Aesthetic concerns and self-confidence: Crooked teeth can impact smile aesthetics, leading to self-consciousness and decreased self-esteem.
  • Digestive issues: Poorly aligned teeth can affect chewing, potentially leading to digestive discomfort and decreased nutrient absorption.

Don't let untreated, crooked teeth affect your oral health and quality of life! Schedule a consultation today at Burnaby Dental Centre to explore the best treatment options for you.

What’s the root cause of crooked teeth?

Crooked teeth can be caused by a variety of factors, including

  • Genetics: Inherited traits from parents and family members can influence tooth alignment.
  • Insufficient space: Limited jaw space can lead to overcrowding and misalignment of teeth.
  • Dental trauma: Accidents or injuries to the mouth can cause teeth to become crooked.
  • Poor oral habits: Improper swallowing, mouth breathing, or tongue thrusting can contribute to crooked teeth.
  • Unbalanced jaw growth: Differences in the upper and lower jaws can result in misalignment.
