Causes of crooked teethOver time, a number of theories regarding the origin of dental misalignment have been disproven. However, several scientifically-sound factors remain, and some may surprise you.
- Like hair and eye color, dental traits are also affected by genetics. For example, a small mouth contributes to crowded teeth, and misaligned jaws lead to over- or underbite.
- Poor oral habits in infancy may create noticeable problems years later. Thumb-sucking and pacifier use may seem harmless to a baby, but result in smile imperfections at adulthood. Other unconscious habits such as mouth breathing, reverse swallowing, and tongue thrusting also have a negative impact on oral development.
- Baby teeth are anchors for permanent teeth. If they are lost early from decay or trauma, adult teeth lack a guide for straight growth. They may emerge in unexpected alignment!
- Diet plays an important role. A broad jaw allows emerging teeth to drop into position naturally. A sturdy palate supports facial structure including tooth placement. Industrialized, processed foods do not contain sufficient nutrients for bone growth. The result is a narrowed face and crooked teeth.
- Facial trauma, including mouth or jaw injury, may literally move teeth out of place. The outcome can be cosmetic, or dramatic.
Call our office for more informationRegardless of the circumstances, self-image and success in adulthood are affected by misalignment. A 2012 Kelton study showed that people with straight teeth are 57 percent more likely to get a date from an internet dating site than those with crooked teeth. Thirty-eight percent of Americans would ditch the second date with someone who has misaligned teeth. People with straight smiles are perceived as happier, healthier, and smarter. They are 45 percent more likely to get a job over candidates with similar experience and skills but crooked teeth, and 58 percent more likely to be successful.
