Causes of Crooked Teeth

You might have crooked teeth but have you ever wondered how it happened in the first place?

There’s actually no one-size-fits-all answer to this question as there are various causes for your crooked teeth.

Normally, the causes of crooked teeth begin usually long before seven years of age. The causes of crooked teeth and/or jaw can stem from developmental issues that begin at birth.

Teeth can naturally develop incorrectly, or with flaws, for a number of reasons.

These reasons include jaw growth deformities, genetic influences, certain oral care habits, chronic mouth breathing or obstructed airways and other severe oral health conditions that you might have.

Other problems associated with misaligned teeth include jaw pain, headaches, as well as difficulty in cleaning the teeth, potentially causing tooth decay and gum disease. Moreover, it can also interfere with proper biting and chewing.

That’s why it really is important to correct crooked teeth not just for appearance sake, but more so for oral health.

While some of the mentioned reasons behind having crooked teeth are beyond your control, there are a handful of things that you can do to have it fixed.

Functional dentistry can help in identifying and addressing the different causes of crooked teeth.

Having braces and other types of orthodontic treatments can be necessary to correct your crooked teeth.
