Crooked teeth can be corrected

Crooked teeth can cause more than just dental problems. They can trigger all kinds of trouble from headaches to hearing issues, digestive ailments, or even mood swings and poor self-esteem.

Crooked teeth are most often something we inherit. Sometimes they develop from destructive personal habits like thumb-sucking and lip or nail biting.

Crooked or crowded teeth at the front of the mouth can make people feel self-conscious. Bite and chewing difficulty can ignite headaches and set off indigestion, especially if the teeth don’t meet properly and make fully chewing food difficult. Many people with misaligned teeth have so much trouble chewing that they avoid the crunchy or hard foods we all need for good health. Add to that the difficulty of keeping teeth clean when they are too crowded to floss between, and these conditions can spell trouble for dental health.
