Can Tooth Grinding Cause The Misalignment Of Teeth? If So, How Would I Fix This Problem?

Q.
Hello, I am looking for an advice regarding teeth straightening. I have recently noticed that my teeth (front ones) are becoming slightly curved in appearance – they are not as straight (vertically) as they used to be.  I am not sure if this is related to the teeth grinding problem I am going through at the moment, and can I also ask whether teeth grinding can affect teeth alignment? Can you please offer any advice regarding this matter as I’d like to fix this problem in the future. Many thanks.

Hello and thanks for getting in touch. Yes, teeth grinding can definitely affect the alignment of your teeth. My advice would be to go and see a cosmetic/restorative dentist who also offers orthodontics so they can advise you on both matters. Once you have been examined by an expert then you should have some clearer answers as to what the diagnosis of the problem is could be, whether it’s the grinding or some other matter. Kind regards, Mark.
