Why Your Teeth May Shift Around During Your Sleep

Posted on 2/25/2018 by Everwell Dentistry
Shifting Teeth Everwell Dentistry MI 48104Shifting teeth are a natural, normal thing to happen. There are many causes for this and it can mean many things, but when it comes to shifting, everyone wants to know why they are and what they can do to help the teeth and keep them in the place they are supposed to be at.

Teeth can shift for a variety of reasons, but the most common problem is when the teeth in the mouth shift at night. When this happens, the teeth might be moved to one side of the mouth or have gaps in between them.

Why Teeth Shift at Night

Usually when teeth shift during the night, it is because they are pushed to one side by sleeping regularly on that same side. This causes the teeth to naturally push to the other side of the mouth. Repeated use of the one side of the face can cause this to happen.

When the teeth are shifting at night, they are being pushed to the one side and with the pressure being localized to that area, they are not going to be able to shift back.

Doing this every night for a long period of time will eventually lead to having the teeth pushed to this side permanently. This may require the use of braces in the mouth to correct the problem or might cause gaps to form in the teeth on one side and tight spaces on the other side.

If you feel that your teeth are misaligned and need to be moved to another area of the mouth, then speak with our professionals. We can provide you with even more information regarding the shifting of teeth and how you would be able to stop or correct the problem. This can help you have a better overall smile once again.
The first step to a healthy beautiful smile is to schedule an appointment.
