Going through life with crooked teeth is unnecessary and can actually be harmful to overall health. Although the teeth may be only slightly overlapping there is still room for plaque and harmful bacteria to accumulate in the crevices.

Over time, if left untreated, these bacteria can lead to dental and medical conditions including:

– Gum disease and tooth loss

– Lung infections

– Cardiovascular disease

As people age “gums can weaken and teeth move” but even in adulthood misaligned or crooked teeth can be rectified by a dentist. Having crooked teeth fixed is a sensible option to avoid later dental and medical issues and you can find out more at https://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-6431087/Why-wonky-teeth-bad-heart-lungs.html.
