You are probably aware that brushing and flossing your pearly whites is important if you’re interested in avoiding a number of issues. You might have also heard that there some issues you may not be able to prevent with just brushing and flossing. For instance, did you know that there is practically nothing you can do to prevent crowded teeth? Still, if you are suffering from crowded teeth, we can help you address your issue.
If you find that you have crowded teeth, you may understand that they may not be aesthetically appealing. However, while the look of your smile is important, did you know that you could have to deal with some serious problems? For example, if you do suffer from crowded teeth, you may actually struggle to keep your teeth as clean as they should be. If this happens, you could end up with gum disease. Sadly, gum disease may also lead to some serious issues, like bad breath, sensitive teeth, and even tooth loss.
Crowded teeth could also affect your bite. If your bite isn’t perfectly even, your teeth might wear down over time. Unfortunately, if you do have worn down teeth, you might end up grinding your pearly whites. If you find that you are grinding your teeth, you’ll be more vulnerable to sensitive teeth and you may lose your pearly whites prematurely. Bruxism tends to cause jaw pain and regular headaches.
