Your upper and lower teeth should fit together “in occlusion”. When teeth are not aligned properly, dentists call this “malocclusion”.
This condition can lead to problems such as periodontal disease, premature wear of your teeth, tooth fracture and chips, strained or painful jaw joint problems, poor jaw bone health and more. Here are some potential problems that crooked teeth can cause.
Crowded Teeth: build up of plaque and bacteria, possible leading to periodontal disease, tooth and bone loss
Gapped Teeth: food traps in between teeth, sore tender or swollen gums, infections or periodontal disease leading to tooth or bone loss
Overbite: premature wear and chipping of lower front teeth, as well as possible damage to palette of mouth
Underbite: Shortened or worn down front teeth, chipped or broken teeth, jaw and joint pain
Crossbite: premature tooth wear and chipping, abfractions, which are notches being cut out of teeth close to the gum line, and periodontal disease leading to tooth or bone loss
Openbite: abfractions, gum recession, loose teeth or tooth loss and excessive wear on back teeth
