Treating these issues through orthodontics is often necessary and, if left untreated, may lead to further dental health problems as an adult. Over crowded or crooked teeth make it difficult for a teenager to use proper oral hygiene, which may result in tooth loss, tooth decay and gum disease. Some teens also face worn tooth enamel problems which leads to sensitivity and problems chewing. Bad bite can result in extra pressure on gum tissue and supporting bone. Taking an earlier approach to orthodontic treatment may prevent future dental problems.
