Crowded teeth can cause many orthodontic problems, and increase your changes of cavities, decay, and related problems.

Crooked teeth, or malocclusion of the teeth, is a type of misalignment problem that can lead to serious dental problems later if left untreated, including cavities and decay, and gum disease. It can also cause lesser problems, such as discolored or fractured teeth. While our orthodontist may occasionally recommend that a tooth be pulled to aid in corrective treatments, this is usually a last resort. Other treatments are often considered first. Among the treatments for crowded teeth are treatments such as cosmetic contouring.
When you visit our friendly practice, our orthodontist will work with you to determine the best options for your oral health and your smile, and create a plan that meets your needs. This plan may involve tooth extractions, corrective aligners, braces, or other appliances.
We invite you to contact our office today for more information on correcting crowded teeth and to schedule your consultation with our caring orthodontist.
