How Misalignment of Teeth Can Impact Your Child’s Health

November 30, 2018 ABC Children's Dentistry

The American Dental Association confirms that most abnormal tooth placements – or bites – typically make themselves known between the ages of 6 and 12. But if you think that the misalignment of your child’s teeth is merely a cosmetic problem, it’s time to think again.

In this issue, the child dentistry experts with ABC Children’s Dentistry in San Diego will talk about the potential health dangers of overcrowding teeth.

What causes misalignment of teeth?

Known as malocclusion, the misalignment of teeth is typically a condition that is inherited. There are, however, a few habits that can contribute to the condition, including prolonged thumb sucking, use of a pacifier beyond the age of 3, and extended use of a baby bottle.

What can a misalignment of my child’s teeth lead to?

There are a host of chronic conditions that can result from your child’s tooth misalignment.

  • Consistent headaches stemming from continued uneven connections between your child’s teeth and jaws.
  • Halitosis (bad breath) because of hiding places for bacteria caused by the hard-to-clean nooks and crannies of crooked or crowded teeth.
  • Wear and tear on certain teeth because of uneven connections between the upper and lower jaws.
  • Gum disease as bacteria accumulates around the teeth.
  • Increased chances of protruding teeth being chipped or cracked during an accident.
