The Common Causes Of Dental Irregularities


The Common Causes Of Dental Irregularities

by Matthew Gray

There are many types of dental alignment issues, the most well known being misalignment, uneven spacing, overcrowding, and extensions. A lot of people get used to their dental alignment problems as time passes.

Teeth irregularities can cause unease, affecting a person's self-esteem; individuals often put a hand over their mouths while speaking or they seldom smile to conceal the perceived imperfection of their teeth. Moreover, teeth aberrations can affect usual function such as chewing food, which can also have a huge influence on one's nutrition.

Dental imperfections are usually inherited from parents. Just the same, genetics is not the singular cause of dental alignment issues. External elements may also come into play. Some of these causes are the following:

Trauma - Playing rough and coupled with minor mishaps can cause children to loose or fracture their teeth. These fractured teeth will be replaced but may join with the bone that surrounds it. This is called ankylosis - the abnormal joining of the tooth to the bone - and it is a primary reason children grow up with crooked teeth.

Thumb sucking or pacifier use - When children use pacifiers or suck their thumbs for a longer time than what is standard, the habit could cause a noticeable protrusion of the upper row of teeth over the lower row.

Early loss of baby teeth - When baby teeth are lost prematurely, the permanent teeth have no "tracks" as to where to come out through the gum and could erupt in the wrong way.

Some individuals view dental imperfections as minor annoyances that they have managed to treat it as minor annoyances. All the same, it is still a nice practice to have regular dental checkups to make sure that the dental flaws do not cause complications later on.
