What are crowded teeth?

Crowding can present itself in many ways: overlapping teeth, rotated teeth, and teeth that are partially impacted in the jaw. There are several reasons why teeth can be crowded, sometimes the teeth are too big for small jaws, sometimes bad habits lead to malpositioning of teeth and sometimes baby teeth are lost too early or too late and the adult teeth do not erupt in the correct position.

What problem can be caused by crowded teeth?

Teeth crowding affects 74% of American adults. If it is left untreated it can lead to periodontal disease and create an abnormal amount of stress on teeth and the jaw which can lead to premature wear & tear. The effects of crooked teeth can worsen over time and may adversely affect your overall health.

Crowding can fracture the edges of teeth. Additionally, a bad bite may produce improper forces on the jaw joint which may lead to jaw pain and even cause headaches. It becomes difficult to remove plaque and bacteria from the crowded area. Bacteria that are not properly removed will multiply and lead to periodontal disease which begins as gum inflammation, and redness and causes bleeding while brushing and flossing.

  • Teeth are easier to brush and floss
  • Avoid jaw pain and issues
