Crooked Teeth: Risk Factors

Living with crooked teeth can increase your risk of other dental issues. When you have crooked teeth, you may be more prone to develop these problems:

If you have misaligned or crooked teeth, some teeth can feel the pressure from your bite more than others. An uneven bite can eventually lead to TMJ disorders. These bite disorders create headaches, teeth clenching and grinding, and jaw pain.

It’s also often difficult to clean crooked teeth. When teeth overlap, you can’t properly clean hard-to-reach areas of the smile. Harmful bacteria can build up, affecting your tooth and gum health. Straightening crooked teeth can sometimes prevent TMJ disorders, cavities, and gum disease problems.

Invisalign For a Straighter Smile

Dr. Heather Adams is an Invisalign provider in the Rogers, AR area. Dr. Adams offers Invisalign clear aligners to address adult orthodontic relapse and correct mild to moderate cosmetic orthodontic issues. Patients with TMJ disorders may also benefit from realigning their teeth with Invisalign.

Clear aligners are discreet, effective, and can realign your bite in twelve to eighteen months. Invisalign affords teens and adults a more professional alternative to traditional metal braces without compromising results. Clear Invisalign aligners are more comfortable than traditional braces because they do not irritate the gums. Patients enjoy the nearly invisible and comfortable aligners.

Tooth Bonding Treatment

We utilize dental bonding to change the size and shape of teeth. Made of composite resin, bonding material blends in with teeth for a more natural and aesthetically pleasing look. Tooth bonding can be a great option for patients who may not want to commit to a more permanent dental treatment option.

Porcelain Veneers

Dental veneers are an effective aesthetic treatment for slightly crooked front teeth. We create dental veneers using ultra-thin, high-quality porcelain. Our porcelain veneers are color-matched to natural teeth to blend in perfectly. We bond the porcelain ceramic to the front of the teeth for a straighter and brighter appearance.

Are you experiencing an orthodontic relapse?

Orthodontic relapse is fairly common amongst adult patients who had received orthodontic treatment in their youth. Patients often experience shifting of their teeth later in life if they do not comply with their retainer guidelines. For other patients, late-onset orthodontic relapse may occur due to tooth loss or other changes in oral health.

Invisalign allows patients to realign their teeth without the hassle or embarrassment of wearing metal braces as adults. Clear Invisalign aligners can gradually shift teeth back into alignment. Most patients wear a removable or permanent retainer after completing their Invisalign treatment.

Patients must wear the retainer constantly as they would wear their Invisalign aligners. After several years, patients will only need to wear the retainers at night. We will tell you when you can begin to wear your retainers nightly. If you lose your retainer, please contact our office so we can create a replacement as soon as possible.

It is much harder to clean in between teeth that are not straight. Uneven teeth are also more susceptible to chips and cracks, which can be expensive.

Lastly, crooked teeth can also lead to TMJ problems. Straightening your crooked teeth can make you more confident to smile and prevent oral health problems from developing.

What is the best treatment for orthodontic relapse?

Invisalign is a great option for adults who have experienced an orthodontic relapse. This teeth straightening system is very discreet. It involves wearing clear aligners that many people will not even notice.

You will not have to deal with the stigma of wearing metal braces as an adult! After your treatment, we will supply you with a custom retainer to prevent the relapse from happening again.
