Fix Crooked Teeth in Escondido, CA

Straighter teeth are possible, no matter your age

Crooked and overlapping teeth got you down?

Just because you have crooked teeth doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with your smile. But if you want straighter teeth, you deserve to make it a reality!

A recent study found that many people avoid asking their dentist about options for fixing crooked teeth, either because they think it will cost too much or feel nervous about bringing it up. But unless your crooked teeth are causing health issues (which could very well be the case), your dentist might not bring it up either. 

If your crooked teeth make you feel self-conscious, don’t be afraid to ask us about treatments. If cost is a worry, we offer options to fit your budget. We want you to feel happy about your smile. If that translates into straighter teeth, we’d love to help you make it happen.

    What causes crooked teeth?

    Have you had crooked teeth as long as you can remember? Noticing recent changes and movement? A combination of both? There could many underlying causes of your misaligned teeth:

    • Jaw size or alignment
    • Thumb sucking or using a pacifier
    • Tongue thrusting
    • Mouth breathing
    • Your genetics
    • Missing teeth
    • Facial injuries

    When are crooked teeth a dental health issue?

    • Difficulty brushing and flossing
    • Bacterial growth and cavities
    • TMJ issues
    • Gum disease

      Straight talk about mail-order teeth aligners

      Thanks to huge marketing budgets, clear aligner companies like SmileDirectClub and Candid have become a household name in Escondido and throughout California. Although mail-order straightening treatments like these are trendy, they’re not the best option. These DIY orthodontic treatments can inflict serious damage on your health, including TMJ pain, bite issues, and gum disease. It’s not worth the risk. 

      Crooked teeth treatments should always take place under the close supervision of a dentist.

      My husband Gary recently had a new crown made at TLC Dental using a state of the art machine called Cerec. The entire procedure was completed in just a few hours start to finish and the crown is absolutely beautiful! One visit that was it! I can’t tell you how grateful he was to miss only a few hours of work to have this procedure done in 1 visit!  As my husband always tells me they are the best dentist we have ever had. So lucky to call them ours! Thank you TLC!
