Did you know that crooked teeth can affect more than just the way you look? Whether you have an overbite, underbite, crossbite, or other types of malocclusion, your crooked teeth can affect your dental health. At our family dental practice in Everett, your dentist can help you and your children with orthodontic treatment to correct misaligned teeth. Watch this video to find out what you should know about crooked teeth.
Having a great smile full of straight, healthy teeth can boost your confidence in social and professional situations. However, there are more reasons than aesthetics to correct crooked teeth with help from family dentistry. Teeth that are misaligned are subject to undue stress and wear, and may end up with chips or even cracks. The enamel can wear down prematurely, and gum issues are also possible when crooked teeth are not fixed. Once your family dentist corrects your bite, you’ll be able to reach all of your teeth for proper brushing and flossing to further reduce your risk of dental problems.
