The Connection Between Your Health and Misaligned Teeth

Misaligned teeth can lead to premature wear, tooth loss, #gumdisease, and the buildup of #bacteria associated with bigger problems, including heart disease.

More than seven out of ten American adults have some kind of issue with their bites, such as crowding, spacing or overbites -- your #dentist may use the word #malocclusion.

It's hard to remove plaque and bacteria from #misalignedteeth. This can lead to #inflamedgums, #softtissuedamage, #recedinggums, pockets between teeth and gums, #boneloss, and #toothloss.

Early signs of #gumdisease:

• Red gums

• Bleeding when you brush or floss

• Bad breath

Problems that start in your mouth can spread to the rest of your body. Severe gum infections may increase the risk of:




• Problems in pregnancy

• Complications related to diabetes

#Alzheimer's disease

When you teeth are properly aligned, the #healthbenefits are clear. It's easier to #brush and #floss around properly aligned teeth, and you are less likely to have pockets between gums and teeth that trap bacteria. Properly aligned teeth reduce plaque retention, tooth decay and the risk of gum disease.aligned teeth reduce the risk of tooth chipping, breaking and wear, which can require expensive procedures to repair. proper alignment also reduces stress on the jawbone and joints.
