What Are Crooked Teeth?

Crooked teeth can result from a combination of factors, and genetics plays a significant role in determining the alignment of our teeth. If parents or close family members have had issues with crooked teeth or malocclusion, there’s a higher chance of inheriting the same dental traits. Additionally, certain early childhood habits can impact tooth alignment, such as thumb sucking, prolonged pacifier use, or tongue thrusting. These habits can exert pressure on the developing teeth and lead to misalignment over time.

Furthermore, tooth loss can also contribute to crooked teeth. When a tooth is lost, neighbouring teeth may shift into the empty space, causing crowding or gaps. Additionally, improper jaw development or irregularities in the size and shape of the jaw can lead to malocclusion and misaligned teeth.

Impact of Crooked Teeth on Oral Health

Crooked teeth can have a significant impact on oral health, leading to various dental problems if left untreated. Here are some examples:

  • Increased risk of tooth decay due to difficulty in effectively cleaning misaligned teeth.
  • Gum disease and inflammation caused by plaque buildup along the gumline.
  • Problems with jaw alignment and bite due to crooked teeth.
  • Potential difficulty in chewing and biting properly.
  • Impact on overall oral health, leading to potential long-term dental issues if left untreated.

Treatments for Crooked Teeth

Our experienced dental team at Coolamon Dental Centre can guide you through the available options and recommend the most suitable treatment plan to correct your crooked teeth and achieve a confident and radiant smile.

Traditional Braces

The most common and effective treatment for crooked teeth, traditional braces use metal brackets and wires to gradually shift teeth into their desired positions. They are highly versatile and can address various degrees of misalignment.


A popular alternative to traditional braces, Invisalign utilises clear, removable aligners that are nearly invisible. These aligners are custom-made for each patient and gently move teeth into the correct position over time.


In cases of minor crookedness or cosmetic concerns, veneers can be a viable option. These thin shells of porcelain or composite resin are placed on the front surface of teeth to improve their appearance and create the illusion of straight teeth.

Tooth Extraction

In some cases of severe crowding, a tooth extraction may be necessary to create enough space for the remaining teeth to align properly.


What Is the Ideal Age to Correct Crooked Teeth?

The ideal age to have misaligned teeth corrected through orthodontic treatment can vary depending on individual circumstances. In general, orthodontic treatment can begin as early as 7 to 8 years old, during the mixed dentition phase when both primary and permanent teeth are present.

This early intervention, known as interceptive orthodontics, can help guide the growth and development of the jaw and dental arches, creating more space for permanent teeth and reducing the severity of misalignment.

For comprehensive orthodontic treatment, most children and teenagers can start between the ages of 10 to 14 when all or most of their permanent teeth have erupted. During this time, the teeth and jaws are still developing, making it an opportune period for orthodontic correction.

However, it’s essential to note that orthodontic treatment is not limited to children and teenagers. Many adults also seek orthodontic care to correct misaligned teeth and achieve a straighter smile. Advancements in orthodontic technology, such as Invisalign and clear aligners, have made treatment more discreet and convenient for adults.

Everyone working at Coolamon Dental are so helpful & friendly. Dr. Gen is so patient with me knowing I am terrified of going to the dentist. The ladies in reception put you at ease as soon as you come in the door. They are so friendly & have a laugh with you which helps when you are so nervous. The dentist explains everything that's going to be done so there are no surprises. The rooms are absolutely spotless. I now don't mind going to this dentist. Can highly recommend Coolamon Dental.

Shaun and Jenny were fantastic.
I came in for a toothache and they were able to fit me in. I'm a nervous patient and Shaun did an amazing job of calming my nerves and explaining the issue and options and then sorted the problem with minimal discomfort.

I'll be back for regular checkups!
