“My teeth aren’t straight, and they look bad” a friend of mine once said, and I kept thinking of what the teeth normally should look like. Should they become 100% straight or mild tilting is normal and that’s what gives the teeth their natural lovely appearance? Let’s learn together!
To an extent, tilted teeth are normal and don’t cause you any harm whether functionally or aesthetically, but for many people, the degree of their teeth tilting or displacement is very high, causing many problems.
But first, why does this happen from the start?
It may be due to:
What are the results of having my teeth misaligned?
Tilted or displaced teeth usually harbor more bacteria which exposes your teeth to a greater risk of caries and periodontal problems, moreover, it puts the TMJ under more stress and strain, and finally, your teeth may be more easily fractured or cracked.
How can I fix my teeth and make them straight?
Ortho treatment: This is the first and best option we have for misaligned teeth, as they are minimally invasive and cause only minimal discomfort. They have many types and that’s according to the case and the amount of misalignment present:
Fixed or removable prosthodontics: Sometimes the patient doesn’t want to undergo ortho treatment, so the only option will be placing a fixed appliance as a veneer or a crown or even a removable one as a temporary solution for an important event, for example.
Having crooked teeth may be annoying both functionally and aesthetically, but what is most important is to stay confident no matter what, for some people, their crooked teeth are what make them special.
