There are several reasons why some people’s teeth grow in crooked, overlapping, or twisted. The most common is hereditary, while other causes include irregularly-shaped teeth or jaws, premature loss of baby teeth, and habits such as thumb-sucking or tongue thrusting. It is very important that you schedule an appointment at Le-Cadre Orthodontics so that we can make an early diagnosis and treatment plan that will best suit your or your child’s needs.
Establishing a proper bite is not just cosmetic but can dramatically improve our patients' dental and overall health.
Crooked teeth can:
- Interfere with proper chewing
- Hinder proper oral hygiene, which increases the risk of tooth decay, cavities, and gingivitis
- Strain the teeth, jaws, and muscles, increasing the risk of breaking a tooth
Orthodontics is easier today than ever before, with treatment options at Le-Cadre Orthodontics that fit your lifestyle and schedule. We look forward to helping you or your child achieve the bite and smile that will last a lifetime. Give us a call at our convenient New Rochelle, NY office to book your initial consultation.
