Do you have crowded or misaligned teeth? If you do, you might be aware that either of these dental problems can be embarrassing, but did you know that having crowded teeth might also cause several serious dental issues? Fortunately, there are also a number of solutions you might consider.

Still, did you know that you many people choose to have crowded teeth addressed because they can be embarrassing? However, with crowded teeth, you may find that your smile will be more difficult to clean. If this happens, you’ll be more vulnerable to problems like tooth decay and gum disease. Sadly, tooth decay can also lead to different dental problems such as pain, some difficulty chewing, and even tooth loss.

Finally, did you know that crowded teeth can actually leave you unable to bite correctly? This can be a fairly serious issue because an uneven bite can ultimately wear down your teeth, which can expose your dentin or inner layer of your teeth. Sadly, exposed dentin can leave you more vulnerable to sensitive teeth. Sadly, you’ll also be more likely to grind your pearly whites if you do suffer from crowded teeth. Grinding teeth can also lead to problems such as frequent headaches, fractured teeth, a cracked tooth, and even tooth loss.
