Reasons the Alignment of Your Teeth May Change

Posted on 8/23/2021 by Dr. Frank Sallustio
Reasons the Alignment of Your Teeth May ChangeYour teeth will move and adjust their position over time. While it is mostly thought that teeth are immovable, they are flexible enough to do so. Your teeth are connected to the lower and upper jaw by cementum material and the periodontal ligament. This combination gives your mouth the ability to withstand forces placed on teeth when biting, chewing, or talking. However, as time progresses, your teeth shift naturally due to different triggers and stressors.

The Aging Process

Your face muscles don't remain the same as you age; they keep adjusting with time. The jaw is aligned in a certain position that keeps your teeth in perfect alignment. However, the aging process can cause changes to your jaw positioning, affecting your teeth' alignment. Older people are more likely to have misaligned teeth due to the effects of the aging process. As much as this process is inevitable, there are various dental procedures that will help put your teeth back in the correct alignment.

Orthodontic Treatment

Undergoing an orthodontic procedure like getting dental braces can change your teeth' alignment. These procedures exert a certain amount of pressure that can cause natural teeth to adjust their position. This is why it is important to come to our offices for professional orthodontic procedures that reduce the risk of teeth misalignment. Our professionals are highly experienced and have the necessary equipment to perform safe and effective procedures.

Teeth Grinding

When you grind or clench your teeth, you are more likely to cause teeth misalignment. Also known as bruxism, grinding exerts excessive pressure on your teeth that can lead to misalignment. Some of the other dangers of bruxism include jaw damage, wearing out of the enamel, and increased risk of infections. Contact our offices for more information on the causes of teeth misalignment.
