Did you know that approximately 74% of American adults suffer from some degree of oral malocclusion? Malocclusions that are left untreated increase a person’s risk of periodontal disease and put abnormal amounts of stress on the teeth and jaw bones—increasing the chances of premature tooth wear.
This video from Invisalign.com provides an overview of the health effects of crooked teeth. The most common types of malocclusions include crowding, spacing, open bites, crossbites, overbites, and excessive over-jets. Watch this clip to learn more about the adverse health effects associated with crooked teeth.
