What’s healthier about straighter teeth?

Misaligned teeth can lead to premature wear, tooth loss, gum disease and the buildup of bacteria associated with bigger problems including heart disease.

More tan seven out of ten American adults have some kind of issue with their bites such as crowding, spacing or overbites-your doctor may use the word malocclusion.

Malocclusion: abnormal tooth alignment

Are you experiencing any of the following?

*Cold Sensitivity

*Teeth chipping or wearing

*Food getting caught between teeth

*Difficulty flossing

*Self-consciousness when smilingĀ  for photos

*Biting lips, cheek or tongue

*Indentations at the gum line

*Speech changes or lisping

*Bad Breath

*Dry mouth or mouth breathing

The connection between you health and misaligned teeth.

Painful gums and gum disease:

It’s hard to remove plaque and bacteria from misaligned teeth. This can lead to inflamed gums, soft tissue damage, receding gums, pockets between teeth and gums bone loss and tooth loss.

Early signs of gum disease:

*Red gums

*Bleeding when you brush or floss

*Bad breath

There may be no signs of gum disease until the advanced stages.

Gum disease: disease of the soft tissue and bone support around your teeth.

Tooth and gum deterioration and tooth loss:

Poorly aligned teeth can put extra stress and pressure on teeth and the jawbone. This can cause:

*Receding gums

*Gum disease

*Indentations at the gum line

*Cold sensitivity

*Chipped or fractured teeth

*Tooth loss

Overall health risks:

Problems that start in your mouth can spread to the rest of the your body. Severe gum infections may increase the risk of:

*Heart disease


*Lung diseases

*Problems in pregnancy

*Complication related to diabetes

*Alzheimer’s Disease

*Bacteria form a film underneath the gums, particularly where teeth are misaligned. Gum pockets form, further trapping bacteria and debris.

*Bacteria and its byproducts trigger an inflammatory response.

*Your immune system creates white blood cells and proteins to fight the inflammation.

*The combination of bacteria, toxins, white blood cells and acute phase proteins damages the cells that line your coronary arteries, resulting in plaque and leading to hardening of the arteries.

Straight teeth are healthier teeth: when your teeth are properly aligned, the health benefits are clear.

Healthier gums:

It’s easier to brush and floss around properly aligned teeth and you are less likely to have pockets between gums and teeth that trap bacteria.

Improved hygiene:

Properly aligned teeth reduce plaque retention, tooth decay and the risk of gum disease.

Less wear and trauma:

Aligned teeth reduce the risk of tooth chipping, breaking and wear, which can require expensive procedures to repair. Proper alignment also reduces stress on the jawbone and joints.
