Misaligned Teeth is a dental condition in which the alignment of teeth is improper. Misaligned Teeth could be crooked teeth, overlapping teeth and even twisted teeth. For some people the jaw line is too small to accommodate teeth, resulting in crowding. Symptoms of Misaligned Teeth are:
• Trouble chewing or biting food
• Susceptibility to tooth decay and gingivitis
• Self-consciousness in people
• Strain on the jaws and muscles
HOW IS MISALIGNED TEETH DIAGNOSED?
A dentist would use x-rays and teeth impressions to study and determine the extent of the misaligned teeth and to decide on the best treatment option.
HOW IS MISALIGNED TEETH TREATED?
Misaligned teeth can be rectified with the use of a removable retainer, braces and in some cases extraction.
