Correcting these problems can prevent grinding, clenching, or excessive wear of teeth. It may also help stop gum problems, as serious cases of malocclusions can sometimes can damage to the gums.
Teeth that are heavily crowded or overlapping can make it difficult to clean around the teeth; correcting this issue often makes it easier to maintain good oral hygiene. In general, straighter, better-aligned teeth tend to be easier to look after, which helps prevent the risk of tooth decay, periodontal disease, and even tooth loss.
For those with serious alignment problems, patients may experience impaired speech or pain in or near the jaw joint. Orthodontic appliances can help reduce problems in these areas, allowing for clearer speech or reduced (or altogether eliminated!) discomfort and pain.
