You probably know that brushing and flossing your teeth is important if you’re interested in preventing a number of issues. However, you also may know that there some issues you might not be able to prevent by keeping your teeth healthy. For example, did you know that there may not be anything you can do to prevent crowded teeth? Still, if you have crowded teeth, we recommend having the issue addressed as soon as possible.

If you have crowded teeth, you probably understand that they may not be very attractive. However, while the appearance of your smile is important, did you know that you may have to cope with more serious problems as well? For instance, if you have crowded teeth, you could struggle to keep your teeth as clean as you should. Gum disease can also lead to serious issues, including bad breath, sensitive teeth, and potential tooth loss.

Crowded teeth will also affect your bite. Sadly, if your bite isn’t even, your teeth might wear down. Sadly, if you have worn teeth, you might also start grinding your pearly whites. If you grind your teeth, you’ll be more likely to have sensitive teeth and to lose your teeth prematurely. Bruxism can also cause jaw pain and regular headaches.
