  • Poor Oral Hygiene
  • If you have mal aligned teeth, it can be a strenuous task to brush and floss while reaching every corner of your mouth. The difficulty in cleaning can lead to periodontal disease which in turn can cause your teeth to become loose.

  • Gum Disease
  • Plaque is created inside your mouth, generated by bacteria on your teeth and gums, it can lead to gum disease, if not removed regularly. 90% of adults in the UK have some form of gum disease, even if only a small amount.

  • Bad Breath
  • Apart from looking unpleasant, crooked teeth may also cause bad breath. Difficulty in cleaning your teeth can result in build up of plaque and bacteria, which tends to lead to a foul or unpleasant smell coming from your mouth.

    You could fix these problems temporarily with things like regularly brushing, flossing etc. But a permanent solution would be to correct the issue of mal aligned teeth using orthodontics
