Crooked Teeth

Teeth that are misaligned or crooked can have a detrimental effect on both your appearance and your dental health. In addition to feeling self conscious about your natural smile, you may suffer from a range of dental concerns. Crooked teeth can raise your risk for:

  • Tooth decay and cavities: it is often difficult to effectively clean between the teeth when they are crooked.
  • Bite disorders: misaligned teeth disrupt the balance of force when biting down, often leading to the symptoms associated with bite and TMJ disorders such as headaches and jaw pain.
  • Tooth damage: an uneven bite can lead to chipped or cracked teeth.

Louisville CO dentist Dr. Tracey Hughes works with patients on an individual basis to determine the most effective treatment option for straightening crooked teeth. There are a range of dental treatments that can be used to realign the bite or address teeth that are crooked for a healthier, aesthetically pleasing smile. Dr. Hughes will evaluate your oral health and discuss your personal concerns and goals before recommending appropriate treatment options for your consideration. The goal of treatment is to provide long term dental health through effective, conservative dentistry tailored to your unique needs. Treatment options that Dr. Hughes offer are invisible braces and porcelain veneers.

Straighten Crooked Teeth for A Healthy Smile

Straightening crooked teeth is not just for the young- many adults suffer from both the embarrassment and oral health effects of teeth that are misaligned. In some cases, patients experience changes in the bite and position of the teeth as a result of aging, even those who had previous orthodontic treatment. It is important to recognize the benefits that straightening your smile can offer for long term dental health, in addition to a confidence boost.
