When you have adult teeth, you know these are your permanent teeth. These are teeth that sit inside the mouth and they all have a place. Sometimes adults may need braces, and adults still need regular cleanings and exams from our office, every six months.
However, if you are noticing that your teeth are shifting around into areas that they are not supposed to be then you need to speak with us to find out what can be done before it becomes serious.
Shifting Teeth as an Adult
As an adult, you need to make sure that you have healthier teeth and gums. This means paying attention to the placement of the teeth. When this is a problem, you need to make sure that you are letting us know. This could mean that there is a problem with the gums in the mouth, or even the roots of the teeth.
We need to take pictures of the teeth to see if there is a cause for having this happen. We may also ask questions to find out if there are underlying reasons for having this happen. We will work with you to help you get the smile you need and want, while helping you keep the smile you want.
If you notice shifting teeth, then this is something that is not normal, and we highly recommend that you speak with us regarding the help that is needed to fix the teeth that you have. Permanent teeth should be permanent and not move at all. Speak with our professionals here at our dental office to find out how we can provide the help needed.
