The 4 Most Common Problems Teeth Straightening Can Fix

If you are unhappy with your teeth then you are certainly not alone. We are constantly bombarded with images of celebrities with ‘Hollywood’ Smiles and luckily, using various teeth straightening methods, it is possible to correct any problems you have with your smile. We’ve set out below the 4 most common issues our patients come to us with. Why not start your journey to getting straight teeth right now by completing our 5 minute Smile Quiz?


Teeth Straightening1. Gaps between your teeth leading to a ‘gappy smile’

Having a gap between your teeth, especially your front teeth can make a huge difference to your overall appearance. It is a common problem and can be corrected using orthodontic treatment which will help close the gaps,  improve your smile and align your teeth.

As well as the obvious cosmetic benefits, there are positive implications for your dental health as closing gaps can help prevent bite disorders and you will also find it easier to brush and floss your teeth.

2. Overcrowded Teeth

Do you feel that your teeth are too ‘crowded’ inside your mouth? Having crowded teeth is a common problem which is not just aesthetic but can lead to dental health issues in the future such as premature wear, tooth loss, gum disease and jaw damage.

Early  intervention will also reduce the need for more major treatments later on in life. Luckily, problems with overcrowded teeth can often be resolved using orthodontic treatment, although of course this will depend on your particular situation. We are offering a free initial ‘Smile Consultation’ during which we will be able to guide you on what the options are for your situation.

3. Teeth that stick out –  Protruding or ‘buck’ teeth

Again, this is a classic problem we see every day. Protruding teeth can tend to get more damaged more easily so braces can help to pull them back in line.

If your teeth protrude due to an imbalance in your jaws, we might recommend a more comprehensive approach such as the Damon Brace System, however this will all be discussed with you after we have fully assessed your situation and circumstances.

4. Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth can badly affect your confidence leading to issues of low self confidence and self consciousness. Braces and orthodontic treatment can realign teeth which slant or overlap each other leading to straight teeth and a fantastic smile!  

Having straight teeth will mean your oral health will improve as it is much easier to keep them clean when brushing leading to fewer cavities and minimising gum disease.
