Crooked Teeth Dentist Medford Oregon
Are Crooked Teeth an Issue?
Crooked and crowded teeth — what dentists call “malocclusion” — refer to the unfavorable alignment of your teeth. Although crooked teeth usually don’t limit the day-to-day function of your smile, over time they can cause some dental issues, including…
- Increased wear on enamel
- Weakening of your teeth
- Chips and breaks
- Jaw pain
- Tooth decay
Dr. Catt and our team help fix crooked teeth in Medford every day. Request an appointment today and talk to us about your options.
Crooked Teeth Can Make You Feel Self-Conscious
Crooked teeth can negatively affect an individual’s self-esteem. It can cause people to not smile as often, be less social, avoid public speaking, struggle in the workplace, and have social anxiety. If you have crooked teeth — even if they aren’t currently causing any dental health problems — fixing them is important. You deserve to regain your confidence and well-being!
Do Crooked Teeth Get Worse With Age?
If it feels like your misaligned, overlapping teeth just keep getting worse with time, you’re not imagining it!
As you age, the density of your jaw bone can slowly reduce and shrink in size — especially if you’re dealing with missing teeth or poor oral health. The result is a disparity between the size of your jawbone and your teeth, which can cause or exacerbate crowding and overlapping.
It’s just one more reason why you must maintain your oral health as you get older!
