Tooth decay is the number one cause of crooked teeth or other forms of tooth loss. In most cases, tooth decay happens due to improper oral hygiene and lack of regular brushing, flossing and visiting your dentist regularly for check-ups. Proper oral care is crucial for ensuring your oral health and avoiding the risks associated with bad oral health such as sore gums, cavities, bad breath and even tooth loss.
When a person has crooked teeth, he or she may be prone to tooth decay and other dental problems. However, conventional treatments for crooked teeth include dental crowns, which are used to replace the decayed or broken teeth and help to make perfect symmetry in the teeth, restoring crooked or damaged teeth to their natural symmetry. In some cases, crooked or out-of-place teeth will also need to be treated with braces and traditional orthodontics following an oral health consultation from a qualified professional.
Braces are designed to correct crooked teeth by strengthening the teeth and aligning them. In addition, the proper alignment of the teeth will allow the patient to smile without suffering from ill effects. This also allows the patient to get rid of the unattractive “U” bite, which results from crooked teeth.
Dental crowns are made of a specially designed material that protects the teeth and provides an illusion of a perfect tooth alignment. This helps patients to smile confidently without being self-conscious about having misaligned teeth. The material that is used to construct these crowns is known as dental composite, and it is bonded to the front portion of the tooth in order to reinforce the tooth so that it is properly placed in its proper position.
The benefits of using these dental crowns for crooked teeth are numerous, including teeth that are protected from further damage caused by cavities, broken or chipped teeth, and gum disease. They also support optimal oral health and provide a more symmetrical appearance which can improve the confidence of most people. When your teeth are aligned correctly, your smile will appear bright and full-figured, and there are benefits to your overall health in many ways. You will get fewer cavities, better digestion, fewer headaches, better gum health, fewer soft-tissue injuries, and higher self-esteem.
You should talk with a certified dentist before having dental treatments for crooked teeth, as the treatment you choose must be suited to the type of crooked teeth you have and the shape of your mouth. It is important to find a dentist who is qualified and experienced in treating your particular type of crooked teeth so that the treatment will be the safest and most effective option.
