How Does Teeth Straightening Work?

Teeth straightening treatments, whether traditional braces or Invisalign clear aligners, work by applying consistent, gentle pressure to your teeth over time. This pressure gradually moves your teeth into the desired positions with minimal pain and discomfort.

Clear Aligners

A series of custom-made, clear plastic trays that fit snugly over your teeth. Each invisible aligner applies precise pressure, moving your teeth incrementally. You’ll switch to new teeth aligners every few weeks as your teeth straightening progresses.

Traditional Braces

Metal or ceramic brackets are attached to your teeth, and connected by a wire. Your dentist will periodically tighten this wire, guiding your teeth into alignment.

Veneers

Veneers can dramatically improve the appearance of crooked teeth by masking their misalignment, creating the illusion of a straighter smile. However, they won’t actually straighten your teeth.

What Causes Crooked and Crowded Teeth?

Crooked teeth can develop for various reasons, most of which cause teeth crowding. Some common causes include:

Genetics

Jaw size, tooth size, and the way your teeth naturally come together are heavily influenced by your genetics. If your parents had crooked or crowded teeth, you might be predisposed to the same.

Small Jaw

Not enough space in the jaw can cause teeth to erupt irregularly or become overcrowded. This can be a genetic predisposition or related to growth patterns.

Mouth Habits

Prolonged habits in childhood, like thumb sucking, tongue thrusting, or extended pacifier use, can put pressure on teeth and jaw development. This pressure can lead to poor teeth alignment.

Early Loss of Baby Teeth

Baby teeth act as placeholders for adult teeth. Losing them too early can cause the permanent teeth to erupt in the wrong positions, which can result in crowding and crookedness.

Tooth Loss or Impacted Teeth

Losing permanent teeth can cause the neighbouring teeth to shift towards the gap, disrupting alignment. Teeth that fail to erupt properly can also cause misalignment.

Facial Injury

Trauma to the mouth and jaw can potentially damage tooth development or change the alignment of existing teeth.

Medical Conditions (rare)

In some cases, medical conditions like tumours or cysts in the jaw and mouth area can affect tooth alignment.

Is It Possible to Fix Teeth Crowding?

Yes, it’s possible to fix teeth crowding. Orthodontic treatments, like clear aligners or traditional metal braces, are designed to gently move teeth into proper alignment. Your dentist will assess your specific situation and recommend the best approach to address the crowding and achieve a straighter, healthier smile.

What to Expect During Your Teeth Straightening Consultation

Initial discussion

A dental professional will discuss your straightening teeth goals, concerns, and any specific needs. This conversation helps tailor the consultation to your expectations.

Oral examination

The orthodontist or dentist will conduct a thorough examination of your teeth, jaw, and oral health. This may involve looking for signs of gum disease, and decay, and assessing your bite and alignment.

Imaging

Digital images, X-rays, or 3D scans of your teeth and jaw might be taken. These images are crucial for diagnosing orthodontic issues and planning your treatment accurately.

Treatment plan

Based on the examination and images, your dentist will discuss the various teeth straightening options suitable for you. This could include Invisalign clear aligners or other orthodontic appliances. They will explain the pros and cons, treatment duration, and what each option entails.

Teeth Straightening FAQs

How long does teeth straightening take?

Teeth straightening can take from 6 months to 3 or more years, with an average of 12 to 18 months. Your treatment duration will vary depending on the complexity of your case.

Is teeth straightening painful?

No, but you will feel some discomfort for the first few days. Any discomfort will disappear after about a week. This feeling is temporary as your teeth and mouth adjust to the gentle forces guiding them into their new positions. You may also feel slight discomfort after adjustments.

Can clear aligners correct dental issues?

Yes, clear aligners can correct a variety of dental issues, which makes them a popular choice for both adults and teens looking for a less visible crooked teeth treatment option. Their effectiveness, however, depends on the complexity of your dental problem.
