What is Teeth Realignment? 

What does Teeth Realignment actually mean? 

Usually, adults and children have issues with crooked teeth that are not aligned leading to oral problems. Several reasons starting from your childhood could be one of the causes of crooked teeth. 

An external injury or trauma to your face, open bite, tooth decay, and in rare cases widened jaw could also be a cause of crooked teeth. 

Further, there may be situations right from birth depending on habit e.g., sucking on your thumb, could misalign your teeth. 

It is necessary to realign your teeth to have a proper bite, to better your dental hygiene, and carry a confident smile that would add to your personality. Further, it also adds to one’s overall confidence level.
