Whether you feel it or not, it’s happening: your teeth are shifting. You look in the mirror and notice a gap between your front teeth. Not only that, you also see a little tilt to that bottom eye tooth that wasn’t there before. What happened to the smile made perfect by those ninth-grade braces? Can teeth really start moving on their own?

Reasons for Shift in Teeth

The truth is, yes they can. There are many reasons why you see a shift in your teeth. Some of the biggest culprits are genetics and aging. Other issues, such as cavities and tooth loss, can work against the integrity of your teeth and jaw. Bad habits, such as grinding, can create tension on the upper teeth and push teeth out of alignment. The good news, though, is that there are ways to correct this and future shifting.

The best way to invest in your smile is to partner with a trusted advisor in holistic dentistry. This approach views oral health as an integral part of your overall health—another piece of total wellbeing that includes the condition of your mouth, jaw, and neck. Beginning with a dental exam in our Midtown Manhattan NY clinic, Dr. Sorin will determine the areas of concern and discuss treatment options with you. Preventive dental care at our clinic may also be recommended to correct the course of any teeth shifting. Your personalized treatment plan, which may include an Invisalign or Inman Aligner, will work to improve the health, beauty, and comfort of your smile.

Why Preventive Care is Important

Rather than treating symptoms, preventive care looks at the underlying issues and works to improve overall oral health. Never fear those crooked teeth, help is on the way! Partner with a trusted advisor who understands the process and benefits of comprehensive dentistry, and you will be well on your way to the smile of your dreams.
