Everyone wants a perfect smile. Those pearly whites shining in a perfectly straight line. Sounds like a dream smile, right. However, some dental issues can ruin your smile. What are they? Let’s take a quick look.
1. Crooked teeth
Crooked teeth can really affect your smile. When they are out of alignment, they will make your smile look weird. Moreover, crooked teeth are difficult to clean and that will affect your oral hygiene. Orthodontic devices like clear aligners will help the teeth get back into their right positions and make them straighter.
2. Gaps in the teeth
Gaps in the teeth can make you super conscious (unless you are Madonna who can totally rock a gapped smile). If you have spacing between the teeth and do not want them to bother you anymore, it is time to go for those aligners. They will help in bringing the teeth closer and make them straight and perfect.
3. Bite Issues
When your jaw is misaligned, your bite will be wrong. You can even have an overbite, underbite, open bite, or a crossbite. This is when your upper teeth protrude more than the lower teeth, lower teeth are placed further away from the upper teeth or when your upper and lower teeth do not close, thus leaving your mouth ‘open’. Orthodontics can correct the bite and you will be left with a perfect smile.
4. Crowded Teeth
When you have a smaller mouth, your teeth won’t ‘fit’ in it. Thus, when the teeth erupt, they will be quite crowded in the mouth. Though rare, some people may even have extra teeth in their mouths. The solution would be to remove the extra teeth and use orthodontics to correct the smile.
5. Periodontal Disease
Periodontal or gum diseases can ruin a smile. Imagine flashing your best smile only for the others to see your inflamed and red gums. Oh, the horror of it!
Well, gum diseases are usually a result of plaque build-up. If you have crooked teeth, it will be difficult to clean which would lead to a plaque build-up. No such problem with straight teeth. Consult with an orthodontist how orthodontic options like aligners can straighten teeth and thus minimize the risk of gum diseases.
Other smile issues can include stained, chipped or fractured teeth. All these can make you conscious and lower your self-esteem and confidence. That’s something we don’t want right? So, what do you do next?
