Dentists treat people of all ages for orthodontic issues. Even if you had
braces as a kid to correct an orthodontic problem, adult orthodontic treatment
may be necessary to fix teeth that have migrated back to an improper position.
In addition to causing aesthetic concerns, orthodontic problems can lead
to oral complications as well as health problems that affect other body systems.
Limit Social and Professional Opportunities
Seeing your dentist to correct issues like tooth crowding or an overbite
can give you increased confidence in your appearance. Increased confidence
in your looks can affect your whole demeanor, giving you an air of self-assuredness.
Additionally, studies have shown that others may formulate snap judgments about you
based on the appearance of your bite. Unfortunately, these kinds of judgments can limit the professional and
social opportunities of people with less than perfect orthodontic health.
Make it Difficult to Chew
If your teeth do not line up correctly, you may encounter problems chewing
your food and be forced to limit your diet. Over time, dietary restrictions
can cause malnutrition and weight loss. Furthermore, if your teeth are
not functioning properly, you may not be able to break down food into
small, digestible pieces. Attempting to digest food that has not been
adequately chewed can cause digestive problems like gas, bloating, abdominal
pain, diarrhea, and stomach cramping.
Worsen Dental Hygiene
Even if you see your dentist regularly, overcrowded teeth can be difficult
to brush and floss properly at home. Improper cleaning can lead to a build-up
of bacteria and plaque that could cause tooth decay, cavities, or other
dental issues. Straightening out crooked or crowded teeth will not only
give you a more attractive smile, but it will position your teeth for
optimal dental health.
