Crooked Teeth

How do I fix crooked teeth?

At Sudbury Dental Arts we work closely with each of our patients to find the most effective, conservative solutions to address their dental needs. Crooked teeth or misaligned teeth are a dental concern that may affect children, teen, and adult patients. In order to find the ideal solution to address crooked teeth, your dentist will need to perform a comprehensive exam. At times, crooked teeth may cause complex dental concerns that can affect the condition and function of your smile. Patients with crooked teeth may be more susceptible to developing gum disease, tooth decay, cavities, and even TMJ disorders.

Tooth Decay: Crooked teeth are more difficult to clean. Patients may not be able to effectively brush and floss all surfaces of the teeth, which may result in cavities or tooth decay.

TMJ disorders and Bite Disorders: For some patients, crooked teeth may affect the balance of their bite, which may result in TMJ disorders or other bite disorders. Our Sudbury dentist office offers patients comprehensive, effective solutions for TMJ.

Gum Disease: Gum disease is a result of poor oral hygiene. When the teeth are crooked or misaligned, it becomes increasingly difficult to remove harmful bacteria and debris from the oral cavity.

Our goal is to address crooked teeth before they cause a more complex dental issue. Our team of dentists in Sudbury, MA are committed to helping patients achieve a healthy, beautiful smile. Finding the right solution to address crooked teeth will not only restore your confidence but it will encourage a healthier smile. We work with patients of all ages to help them achieve a straighter smile through convenient, patient-focused dental care.

Treating Crooked Teeth in Sudbury, MA

We offer multiple treatment options to correct the appearance of crooked or misaligned teeth. After a detailed examination, your dentist will suggest which treatment best suits your cosmetic goals, budget, and dental needs. Your dentist will take the time to carefully examine your teeth and gums to check for any signs of dysfunction. If further treatment is needed to address a dental concern, we will address it before recommending a solution to treat crooked teeth.
