Misaligned Teeth and Your Oral Health
Having a less-than-perfect smile takes a toll on a person’s self-confidence. Gapped, crooked, overlapped, and rotated teeth can make people very self-conscious of their smiles to the point that they avoid smiling around others or engaging in social activities.
Improperly spaced teeth affect more than your appearance and self-esteem. It can affect your oral health, too. When teeth aren’t positioned properly, food and surface debris tend to become trapped between them. If teeth are close together, overlapped, or rotated, cleaning away daily food deposits along with plaque is nearly impossible – even with careful and meticulous oral hygiene. This situation increases a person’s risk for developing problematic conditions like dental caries (cavities) and periodontal disease.
