What are crooked teeth?

Teeth are described as crooked when they are misaligned and not arranged in a nice straight row. This can happen because the teeth are not level (up and down), or that they overlap (in and out), or that they are rotated (twisted), or that they have gaps between them.

For some people, this becomes an embarrassing cosmetic problem which affects their self-confidence about their appearance and stops them from smiling. But apart from affecting psychological well-being, crooked teeth can lead to a range of dental problems such as bite and dental function issues, tooth decay and gum disease.

Crooked teeth can vary in severity – from severely crooked teeth to mild misalignments.

How do you fix crooked teeth?

The best way to fix crooked teeth is with orthodontic treatment.

Orthodontic treatment works by applying constant pressure to the teeth and jaws to shift them into a more natural position and improve the appearance of your smile.

There are many different types of braces available to straighten your smile, from traditional ceramic or metal braces to more modern Invisalign invisible braces.

During an initial consultation with our expert orthodontists, we’ll walk you through all of your options and listen to all of your questions and concerns to help you choose the most suitable treatment for you and your lifestyle.

Our team of specialists have years of experience and has helped hundreds of patients to straighten crooked teeth and regain their smile confidence.

In the most severe cases, dentists may recommend orthodontic surgery to fix crooked teeth, or you may be able to go down the cosmetic surgery route if braces aren’t right for you.
