Do I really need to worry about crooked teeth?
If you have crooked, twisted, or overlapping teeth, or if you have problems with your bite alignment, we recommend calling Delaware Smile Center to discuss how orthodontics can help you.
Even if your teeth don't bother you from a cosmetic standpoint, crooked teeth can lead to significant dental problems down the line. For instance, teeth that are crooked or overlapping are difficult to brush properly, which can lead to cavities and decay. If your teeth are crowded, you might have problems flossing, which will eventually lead to periodontal (gum) disease. Because gum disease and dental decay are linked to serious health problems such as heart disease and diabetes, improperly aligned teeth affect your overall health.
