Learn More About Orthodontic Problems

If you need orthodontic treatment, look no further than Magical Smiles Bacchus Marsh. We offer a wide range of orthodontic treatment options, from traditional braces to Invisalign aligners.

Manage Your Orthodontic Problems and Keep a Beautiful Smile

An orthodontic issue can be quite embarrassing, especially during social interactions. Smiling and laughing can become awkward activities. Unfortunately, many suffer from spacing issues, misaligned teeth, and jaw issues due to genetics or unfavourable developmental conditions.

When teeth are misaligned or crowded, it can also be difficult to articulate words properly. Alignment issues can also cause difficulty when biting and chewing food, as some foods are too large or hard to bite into without discomfort or even pain.

Magical Smiles Bacchus Marsh offers treatment options for orthodontic problems to help you get the smile you’ve always wanted. Whether you are looking for braces, metal or clear aligners, or any other orthodontic treatment, our experienced team can guide you through the process and provide personalised care tailored to your individual needs.

Frequently Asked Questions
About Orthodontic Problems

  • Genetics

Some genetic factors can cause teeth and jaw size and shape to develop irregularly. It can lead to orthodontic problems such as crooked or crowded teeth and bad bites (overbites or buck teeth, underbites, and crossbites).

  • Injury
    If a tooth is lost due to an injury or trauma, it may cause the surrounding teeth to shift into the gap left by the missing tooth.

  • Early or Late Baby Tooth Loss

When the loss of baby teeth occurs too early or too late in life, it throws off the natural alignment of the other teeth.

  • Prolonged Thumb Sucking

Childhood habit of sucking on thumbs and fingers for long periods can cause protrusion of teeth. The upper front teeth may protrude forward, which results in orthodontic problems.

  • Habits like Chewing on Pencils/Objects

People who chew on pencils or any other hard object can cause the teeth to become misaligned over time. These objects put extreme pressure on certain areas of your mouth, resulting in shifting and, eventually, crooked teeth.

  • Irregularly Shaped Teeth

In some cases, someone might have a tooth that is oddly shaped compared to the others or a tooth that is larger than normal. This can cause other teeth to shift and pressure other mouth areas, leading to orthodontic problems.

  • Pre-Existing Health Conditions

Some health conditions, like cleft lip and palate, can cause serious orthodontic problems. Early diagnosis and treatment are essential in these cases to prevent any further issues.

 

Signs of an orthodontic problem may include:

  • overcrowding or misalignment of teeth
  • gaps between teeth
  • changes in bite pattern (overbite or underbite)
  • difficulty speaking or properly forming words with your mouth due to misalignment or overcrowding of your teeth
  • pain in your jaw joint due to malocclusion
  • discomfort when eating certain foods
  • Improved Oral Health

Straightening crooked or misaligned teeth can help improve overall oral health. It allows for easier oral hygiene, such as uncomplicated access when brushing and flossing. This makes removing plaque and food buildup easier.

  • Increased Self-Confidence

People who have improved their smile with orthodontics often feel much more confident in how they look. They also feel more comfortable showing off their smile.

  • Improved Functioning

A straightened bite can also make it easier to chew food. It also improves clarity of speech since proper teeth alignment helps with pronunciation.

  • Prevention of Further Problems

Many orthodontic issues can be easily managed when caught early enough. They can be managed before they become more serious dental problems that require additional treatments, such as root canals and jaw surgery.

  • Cost Savings

You may save money in the long run by avoiding more costly procedures in the future. Preventative care, like Myobrace treatment from a qualified dentist, can help you avoid costly dental treatments.

If you do not address orthodontic problems, your adult teeth will remain crooked and misaligned. It increases the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health issues. In addition, unmanaged orthodontic problems can affect the shape of your face and jaw and impair your ability to chew properly. Over time, this can cause headaches, neck and shoulder pain, and speech issues.

Additionally, it is also a cosmetic issue that could cause a decrease in self-confidence due to feeling embarrassed or ashamed of your crooked smile.
