The Problems of Misaligned Teeth
Keeping your teeth aligned to ensure that your teeth perform and look their best for longer. If you have an alignment issue then there’s a chance you have a bad bite and your teeth are put under too much stress, that can shorten their lifespan. Everyone should expect some natural wear and tear on their teeth, but poorly aligned teeth wear prematurely. The best way to correct the issue is with clear braces from Medicare Dental Clinic – Reading.

It is also more difficult to clean crooked teeth compared to straight teeth. Teeth that are correctly aligned and spaced allow your toothbrush to reach every piece of your gums and teeth enamel.

Not only is it more difficult to clean misaligned teeth, but it also leaves you more susceptible to gum disease. If they are left untreated, then your bone and gum tissue could be affected, causing tooth loss. If the condition is allowed to become chronic, then it increases the risk of developing more serious health conditions including heart disease diabetes, and stroke.
