Why are my teeth broken?

Misalignment and crowding of teeth are common problems affecting the teeth on different levels. The severity of crowded and disordered teeth depends on many factors.

Usually, crowding and crowding of the teeth are caused by the difference in the size of the jaws and the size of the teeth. 

When more prominent teeth grow in relatively small jaws, they become crowded to create enough space for them to grow. 

This crowding can also be a regular part of the teething process and gradually correct itself. 

Crowding and disorganization of teeth during the growth of permanent teeth require orthodontic treatment methods for teeth straightening and alignment.

Finger-sucking is one of the everyday habits of children before going to school. Almost 90% of children between 2 and 4 suck their fingers. 

If finger sucking in children continues until the age of 5-6 years, it can affect the child due to the growth of permanent teeth. Grinding teeth can also cause teeth wear and loosening and teeth irregularity.

  • Irregular types of teeth

    •   The distance between the teeth

In the human jaw, this term usually refers to the open space between the front teeth. 

This happens when the teeth and jaws have an unbalanced relationship. The distance between the teeth can sometimes be caused or aggravated by the pressure of the connective tissue between the lips and the gums. 

This causes more mucosal attachment and less keratinized connective tissue to dissolve the teeth in the opposite direction. 

Interdental spacing is a modifiable dental anomaly. 

The treatment of this anomaly includes traditional orthodontic methods, direct tooth connections, and other ways to widen the teeth and teeth straightening to fill the space.

    • Front teeth of the upper jaw

the presence of one of the four front and inner teeth of each jaw; These abnormalities appear due to incorrect thumb-sucking habits.

    • Front lower jaw

Orthodontic treatments are not only for teeth straightening and arranging messed up teeth. In orthodontic treatments, the relationship between jaws and teeth is also improved. 

Many people who face abnormalities in the jaw and teeth sometimes cannot pronounce letters correctly. 

People’s faces and facial bones are also affected by jaw relationships. Orthodontic treatments help chew and speak correctly, teeth straighten, and simultaneously prevent joint discomfort.

Front lower jaw
    • Not touching the teeth.

When the patient clamps his two jaws together, the tips of the upper and lower front teeth do not meet each other. 

An oval-shaped gap (overbite) between two jaws occurs due to the upper and lower jaw displacement. Sucking thumbs in babies is one of the essential causes of this abnormality. 

However, some experts believe improper tongue placement inside the mouth can also be effective. For this group of patients, chewing and biting food and pronouncing some letters becomes difficult or impossible.

    • Excessive overlap of teeth

Sometimes crowded teeth, especially in the front of the jaw, cause food to remain in the teeth, and many dental surfaces are not cleaned when brushing, leading to tooth decay and gum diseases.

Overlapping teeth or tooth crowding occurs when the jaw has insufficient space for permanent teeth to grow. 

The causes of overlapping teeth could be more precise. However, data in statistical research has shown that the size of the mouth and jaw of humans has been shrinking in the past few generations.

What are the most permanent methods of straightening teeth?

Teeth straightening has various methods, but if we want to talk about the most permanent methods of straightening teeth, it usually includes two treatment methods: orthodontic treatment and dental surgery.

  • Orthodontic

Orthodontics means aligning teeth, fixing dental irregularities, and correcting jaw abnormalities. 

The first and best way to straighten teeth is to visit an orthodontist (orthodontist) and perform orthodontic treatments. 

Whether the dental misalignment is minor or severe, in any case, our first and last recommendation is to perform orthodontic treatment for crooked teeth.

The following can be mentioned for the types of orthodontics:

Metal braces for teeth strightening
  • Dental surgery

When the tooth misalignment is so severe that non-surgical treatments have failed, dental surgery can be another option for alignment of teeth.

  Types of common dental surgeries are:

    • Jaw surgery
    • Impact
    • Crown lengthening

     Overall, orthodontic treatments are the most common and least invasive option for straightening teeth, whereas dental surgery may be necessary for more severe cases. 

It is essential to consult with a qualified and experienced orthodontist or dentist to determine the best course of action for straightening your teeth.

What is the fastest way to straighten teeth?

Composite is one of the fastest ways to straighten teeth without orthodontics and fix front and other teeth. This restorative method helps change uneven teeth’ color, shape, and crookedness.

In general, composite is more suitable for people looking to beautify and fix their front teeth and do not want a treatment solution. Because the front teeth are usually seen when talking or smiling.

Moreover, composite is ineffective in solving the severe misalignment of teeth and teeth straightening and cannot replace orthodontics.

What is the most effective method of straightening teeth?

Dental orthodontics is a specialty of the subcategories of dental science, which is the science of pairing irregular teeth and all the problems related to Aligning the teeth. 

Orthodontic treatments are performed to establish a better relationship between teeth and jaws. 

With these treatments, we not only achieve more beauty and teeth straightening, but we can also prevent further caries due to misalignment and overlapping of some teeth or distance between teeth by observing hygiene.

By putting the teeth in their place and creating correct jaw relations, this method causes better pronunciation of letters and words by the patient and, ultimately, his presence in society with confidence.

Sometimes the teeth grow so much that they overlap, are angled, or rotated; they may also be crowded, crooked, or misaligned.

The front teeth are usually placed up and outward in the upper teeth. In the lower jaw, overlap is also pervasive. 

This crowding of teeth becomes much worse with age if neglected. 

Such dental alignment issues not only make your smile look bad but can lead to several oral and dental health problems in the long run and your overall health.

Although you can check your teeth’ crookedness, the dentist will determine if your problem needs treatment and teeth straightening. 

During the examination, the cosmetic dentist looks for the following signs:

  •  Abnormal arrangement of teeth
  • Abnormality of facial appearance
  •  Discomfort or discomfort when chewing or biting
  •  Problems in speech, including the tip of the tongue.

Usually, your cosmetic dentist will refer you to an orthodontist specializing in diagnosing and curing crooked teeth, misaligning the jaws, and aligning the teeth.
