How can crooked teeth impact your overall health

Misaligned or crooked teeth are more than just a matter of aesthetics. They are harder to clean, build up plaque and lead to more complications including heart disease, stroke and diabetes. 

Crooked teeth are not always natural. There are a few factors that may lead to crooked teeth, such as poor oral hygiene, facial injury, enlarged tonsils and breathing through your mouth. Here are some of the potential health problems that a crooked tooth may cause over time:

  1. Gum Disease
    Crooked or misaligned teeth create more hiding spots for plaque and bacteria, giving them an opportunity to build up over time and cause inflammation, bone loss, gum recession and if left untreated, they may lead to serious periodontal disease and loss of teeth.
  2. Higher Risk of Tooth Fracture
    Crooked teeth can affect your bite and may break if you put extra pressure on your teeth, such as biting too hard.
  3. Bad Breath
    Plaque build-up caused by crooked teeth leads to bad breath.
  4. Negative Impact on Overall Health
    Numerous studies have shown a link between oral health and systemic health. Poor oral health can increase your risk of getting heart disease, stroke, diabetes and complications during pregnancy.

If you have crooked teeth, don’t wait until it leads to more complications. Visit your dentist as soon as possible and get your teeth fixed. If you are from the Greater Toronto Area and would like a smile makeover at an affordable cost, contact Dr. Salim Kapadia Dental Centre today.
