What to Do When Your Teeth Being to Shift in Your Mouth

Posted on 4/10/2018 by Dr. Michael Drone
Shifting Teeth Drone Prosthodontics IN 46383As we age, many changes take place in the body, including with the teeth. Over time, teeth can tend to shift which can lead to issues in your mouth. The teeth will move slightly, which can lead to visual differences in the teeth, causing overlapping.

Once straight teeth will not move closer together, which can lead to crowding. With crowded teeth, brushing and flossing can become more difficult. This can lead to a buildup of calculus and plaque.

How to Treat Shifting Teeth

So, what do you do when teeth begin to shift? In reality, there is not much you can do to treat shifting teeth due to aging. You can wear a retainer on a regular basis to try and stop teeth from crowding, but the shifting will continue. When you have missing teeth, shifting can become a real problem. In order to solve the issue, replacing the teeth is necessary.

When you have missing teeth, as the shifting process begins, empty areas are pushed into. When you replace a missing tooth, it can help to stop the shifting from taking place in a big way.

Adding a mini dental implant or permanent bridge can stop your existing teeth from shifting into the open space. Without an open space to move into, teeth are unable to shift in a dramatic manner.

Dentists can use several options to replace missing teeth in order to avoid massive shifting. This can include removable dental partials or traditional dental implants. By learning more about your options, you can avoid a major shift of your teeth as you enter your golden years.
