If either you or your child has crooked teeth, it’s easy to think of them as just a cosmetic problem. They aren’t really causing you any trouble, and your child will probably just grow out of it, right? Unfortunately, this is often not true in either case.
Crooked teeth are much harder to completely clean, making a person much more likely to develop tooth decay and gum disease. Plus, this can cause the teeth to come together incorrectly, making them grind and wear themselves down. For children, crooked baby teeth can lead to severe alignment issues with adult teeth, which can cause both speech and breathing problems.
This is why a straighter smile is usually a healthier smile as well. For those dealing with misaligned teeth, we have a multitude of orthodontic treatments available at Cornerstone Dental Arts that are perfect for patients of all ages, so no matter who we’re helping, we can always give them a beautifully straight smile.
