March 15, 2013

Overcrowded teeth are harder to clean and are more prone to dental diseases. Bacteria may spread to other body parts and cause serious ailments. Orthodontic Affiliates helps patients correct crooked teeth and misaligned bites by providing the treatment you need and the information you should know.

The Causes

Breathing through the mouth and incorrect swallowing may cause misaligned bites and crooked teeth. People who breathe through their mouth during their childhood years may also suffer from nasal breathing disorders. This is common for dancers, ballerinas, professional athletes, and those who experience constant physical load. Bad oral habits may also cause misaligned bite.  Some of these are sucking the fingers, constant biting of the lips, and holding objects in the mouth.

The Consequences

Overcrowded teeth are harder to brush and floss. It usually leads to overbite disorder, depending on the location of your crooked teeth. This may even hinder you from practicing proper oral hygiene. The crooked teeth may trigger gum disease or tooth cavity, accompanied by foul smell and dry mouth symptoms.
