Your Local Orthodontists Want You to be Aware of 10 Common Dental Problems Caused by Crooked Teeth, ,

Having crooked teeth can be embarrassing, but in addition to the cosmetic issues, numerous health problems can also be caused by this condition. Drs. Robert Olson and Richard White, and the team at Olson & White Orthodontics in O’Fallon and Florissant, Missouri, have more than 30 years experience turning crooked teeth into beautiful smiles. They recommend seeing an orthodontist if any of your teeth are crooked to help avoid the ten most common dental problems:

  • Periodontal Disease
  • Tooth Decay
  • Overbite
  • Underbite
  • Increased Wear on Tooth Enamel
  • Misaligned Jaw
  • Broken Teeth
  • Muscle Strain
  • Bad Oral Hygiene
  • Teeth-grinding

If you’re plagued by crooked teeth, or any of the above problems, the orthodontists at Olson & White Orthodontics can examine your crooked teeth and find a solution, such as one of many types of braces. Braces aren’t only for children and teenagers. Sometimes adults need them too. A popular trend for teens and adults alike are Invisalign aligners—completely removable, clear aligners that correct many dental conditions.

Many people avoid having their teeth straightened because they’re afraid of how much braces will cost. Olson & White Orthodontics strives to offer affordable options to meet any budget constraints and are in-network providers for many insurance plans. Consultations are free, and a team member will discuss various payment options without any obligation.

Olson & White Orthodontics treats patients of all ages. You don’t need a referral from your general dentist. Request your appointment online or give the staff a call at Olson & White Orthodontics at (314) 838-8762 (Florissant) or (636) 978-9585 (O’Fallon) to schedule a consultation today.
