Welcome to Teeth at Tiong Bahru, your trusted source for exceptional dental care in Tiong Bahru, Singapore. Our team of General Dentists and Orthodontists are dedicated to helping you achieve a beautiful, confident smile. In this comprehensive guide, we will explore effective solutions for correcting crooked teeth, one of the most common dental concerns.

Understanding Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth, also known as malocclusion, occur when the teeth are misaligned in the jaw. This misalignment can cause various problems, including difficulty in biting and chewing, speech issues, and an increased risk of dental problems such as tooth decay and gum disease.

Treatment Options

General Dentistry

At Teeth at Tiong Bahru, we offer a range of treatments under the category of General Dentistry to address crooked teeth:

  • Dental Examinations: Our skilled dentists perform thorough examinations to assess the extent of your crooked teeth and recommend suitable treatment options.
  • Dental Cleanings: Regular cleanings help maintain oral hygiene, promoting overall dental health, and reducing the risk of complications associated with crooked teeth.
  • Dental Crowns and Bridges: In cases where crooked teeth are severely damaged, dental crowns or bridges may be recommended to restore functionality and aesthetics.


Orthodontics is a specialized field of dentistry that focuses on the correction of crooked teeth and jaw alignment issues. At Teeth at Tiong Bahru, our skilled Orthodontists provide the following effective treatment options:

  • Traditional Braces: Metal braces are a time-tested solution for correcting crooked teeth. They gradually shift teeth into their proper position, resulting in a beautifully aligned smile.
  • Invisalign: This innovative orthodontic treatment uses a series of clear, removable aligners to gradually straighten crooked teeth discreetly.
  • Retainers: Once the desired alignment is achieved, retainers help maintain the results and prevent the teeth from shifting back to their original position.

Our Approach

At Teeth at Tiong Bahru, we understand that each patient's dental needs are unique. Our skilled team of dentists and orthodontists will conduct a comprehensive assessment and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific requirements.

The Benefits of Correcting Crooked Teeth

Correcting crooked teeth offers numerous benefits beyond just enhancing your smile:

  • Improved Oral Health: Straight teeth are easier to clean, reducing the risk of plaque buildup, tooth decay, and gum disease.
  • Better Overall Health: Oral health is closely linked to overall well-being. By correcting crooked teeth, you can contribute to better overall health.
  • Enhanced Self-Confidence: A beautiful smile can significantly boost your self-esteem and improve your social and professional interactions.
  • Proper Jaw Function: Crooked teeth can sometimes lead to jaw misalignment and discomfort. Correcting them can alleviate associated jaw pain and improve functionality.
