Do you have crooked teeth or a misaligned bite and ever wonder why? In most cases, crooked teeth or misaligned bites are inherited traits, just like the color of your eyes or the size of your hands. Other causes might be; early loss of baby or adult teeth, improper fit of dental restorations (fillings or crowns), too small of a jaw to accommodate erupting teeth, gingivitis, undue pressure on teeth and gums, misalignment after severe facial injury, tumors of the mouth or jaw, or common oral health problems in children such as thumb- sucking or teeth grinding.
Regardless of why or how your teeth or bite became misaligned or crooked, Portland Pearl Orthodontics can help give you a healthy smile you can feel confident about!
