Crooked teeth are a common dental concern that can present as both a dental health and cosmetic issue. Crooked teeth can compromise the health of the teeth and gums. Crooked teeth may also cause complications with the jaw and bite resulting in complex TMJ disorders. For some patients, crooked teeth may be treated without the use of traditional braces.
Dr. Eddie Pruitt offers cosmetic treatment options to help patients realign their crooked teeth for a more comfortable and functional bite. Correcting crooked teeth can improve the appearance and overall health of your natural smile. Patients with straighter teeth often enjoy an improved sense of confidence and the added benefits of a more comfortable bite.
If traditional orthodontics is needed to correct more advanced malocclusion, Dr. Pruttt may refer you to a local Houston orthodontist. Cosmetic treatments can be highly successful and take less time than Orthodontics while providing the same oral health and cosmetic benefits.
Why Treat Crooked Teeth?
Treating crooked teeth can improve the oral health and quality of life of many patients. Crooked teeth can make it difficult to properly clean your teeth. Patients with crooked teeth are more likely to develop tooth decay and are at an increased risk of tooth damage and loss. Patients with crooked teeth are also more susceptible to developing gum disease, a progressive bacterial infection of the gums that ultimately affects the tooth support system.
Crooked teeth can cause malocclusion and complex bite concerns. TMJ is a dental concern that affects the health and function of the jaw joint and surrounding facial muscles. A chronic pain condition, TMJ can often be alleviated by straightening crooked teeth. Dr. Pruitt offers Clear Correct invisible braces, a preferred treatment among adult patients for realigning crooked teeth and addressing mild to moderate malocclusion. Clear Correct is often a great option for adults experiencing a relapse of tooth movement after previous orthodontic treatment.
