Causes of Crooked Teeth
Crooked teeth are now common in youngsters and can be seen as early as five. It is typically related to inherited reasons.
But, rather than blaming crooked teeth and poor jaw development on genetics, contemporary research has shown evidence of other reasons.
Open mouth posture, allergies and asthma can lead to a misaligned jaw. The actual causes are mouth breathing, tongue pushing, reverse swallowing, and thumb sucking.
Most of us had one or more of these myofunctional issues as children, which could have resulted in improper dental and facial development.
Crooked Teeth: Can They Cause Issues?
Crooked teeth can have some negative consequences. But it is much easier to eat, speak, and do other daily tasks when your teeth are healthy and correctly aligned.
On the other hand, crooked teeth do not provide adequate support and cause muscular and jaw strain. And because it is more difficult to keep crooked teeth clean, you may be more prone to tooth soreness, sensitivity, gingivitis, and tooth decay.
Treatment for Crooked Teeth
A variety of techniques are available to correct crooked teeth. For moderately crooked teeth, Dental Braces Warrnambool are the most widely utilised technique. Additional methods, including Invisalign, and veneers, can be used to fix minor abnormalities aesthetically.
In some circumstances, a tooth or two may need to be pulled to make room for other crowded teeth to be re-aligned.
At Warrnambool Dental, we aim to save natural teeth and see whether other procedures can help re-align crooked teeth.
We advise early treatments because children with crooked teeth face more obstacles to re-align than adults.
Crooked Teeth Prevention
Children should have regular dental check-ups because crooked teeth can often be avoided if the way adult teeth grow is monitored and maintained properly.
Adults can benefit from regular dental check-ups since they can help prevent tooth loss and keep your teeth healthy for a long time.
Also, wear a mouthguard if you participate in contact sports to protect your teeth.
This will assist in preventing tooth loss and chipped or damaged teeth.
Mouthguards fitted by a dentist are substantially more comfortable and provide far better protection than a normal boil and bite, significantly reducing the risk of tooth injury.
We are here to help you answer these & more questions thoroughly.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Crooked Teeth
1. Is it normal if my teeth are crooked? What am I supposed to do?
In both toddlers and adults, crooked or misaligned teeth are prevalent. If they don’t have self-esteem concerns, many people prefer to skip teeth straightening.
However, if your crooked teeth are severe and affecting your overall health, an orthodontist visit is recommended.
2. What is the time frame for straightening crooked teeth?
Depending on how complicated your teeth are positioned, teeth straightening might take 6 to 24 months.
Furthermore, your orthodontist may recommend wearing retainers to prevent teeth from shifting back into their original position following braces or Invisalign treatment. Retainers are normally worn for six months, for a few hours each day.
