Crooked Teeth

We specialise in aligning crooked teeth with a range of effective solutions. Our experienced dentists are highly trained in orthodontic procedures, including veneers, invisalign, among others.

What Are Crooked Teeth?

Crooked teeth refer to teeth that are misaligned or not in their correct position. This dental condition is common and affects many people of all ages.

Treatment Options for Crooked Teeth

 A confident smile can make a significant difference in how we feel about ourselves, and addressing crooked teeth is a crucial step towards achieving that confidence. Fortunately, there are several effective treatment options available to address this common dental problem.


Braces are one of the most common orthodontic appliances used to straighten crooked teeth. They consist of metal brackets that are attached to the teeth and connected by wires. The wires apply pressure to the teeth to gradually move them into the correct position.


Invisalign another popular orthodontic treatment option that involves wearing a series of clear, removable trays that gradually shift the teeth into place. They are less noticeable than braces and can be removed for eating and cleaning.


After orthodontic treatment, retainers are often used to maintain the new position of the teeth. They are custom-made to fit your mouth and are typically worn at night.


In some cases, veneers may be used to correct minor crookedness or other cosmetic issues. Veneers are thin shells that are attached to the front of the teeth to improve their appearance.

Tooth extraction

In severe cases, tooth extraction may be necessary to create enough space in the mouth to properly align the teeth.

Frequently asked questions

We have compiled common enquiries related to crooked teeth and provided detailed answers to help you better understand this condition.

What causes crooked teeth?

Crooked teeth can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, poor oral habits, and injury or trauma to the mouth. Certain conditions like cleft palate and jaw tumors may also contribute to crooked teeth.

How long does orthodontic treatment take?

Orthodontic treatment typically takes between 18 and 36 months to complete, although the duration may vary depending on the severity of the condition and the treatment method used.

Are invisalign as effective as braces?

Invisalign is an effective alternative to traditional braces for many patients. However, they may not be suitable for patients with severe or complex orthodontic issues.

Can crooked teeth cause other dental problems?

Crooked teeth can increase the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and jaw problems. They may also cause difficulty chewing, speaking, and maintaining proper oral hygiene.

Ways to Prevent Crooked Teeth

While there are many effective treatment options for crooked teeth, prevention is always better than cure.

At Belmont Dental Surgery, we believe that a proactive approach to dental health is key to avoiding many common dental problems, including crooked teeth.

  • Brushing and flossing regularly are essential for preventing tooth decay and gum disease, which can contribute to crooked teeth. Make sure to brush your teeth twice a day and floss at least once a day.
  • If you play sports or grind your teeth at night, a mouthguard can help protect your teeth from injury and prevent them from shifting out of place.
  • Thumb sucking, nail-biting, and other oral habits can put pressure on the teeth and contribute to crooked teeth. Try to avoid these habits as much as possible.

  • Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can help detect and treat dental problems before they become more serious. Your dentist can also offer advice on maintaining good oral health and preventing crooked teeth.
  • If you have children, make sure to monitor their dental development and seek early orthodontic treatment if necessary. Early intervention can help prevent more severe dental problems later on.
