    Hi,

    One of my molars looks a bit crooked. Do I need to have it straighten or can I leave it?

    If you function well i.e. eat and talk OK, and there is no other problem that this crooked tooth causes, then you can leave it. Go see a dentist and maybe an orthodontist. You haven't even put up a photo.

    Hi MattKW,

    Yes, I have no problems eating or talking. I'm little concern it may deteriorate.

    I have uploaded several pictures taken at differet angles with an arrow pointing to the molar. Does it look serious?

    Strange, photos seem to have been flipped during upload, seem to show my molar is on the right side of the jaw. Anyway, the molar is in the top left of my jaw (hope that doesn't confuse anything).
