About Crowded teeth
Overcrowded teeth are a dental condition that occurs when your mouth does not have the space to fit all of your teeth. This can lead to teeth that are crooked, twisted, or overlapping. Overcrowding may be a result of factors such as:
- A jaw that is too small
- Teeth that are too large for your jaw
- Losing a tooth prematurely, causing other teeth to fill in and bunch up
- If baby teeth become loose but do not fall out, they can prevent permanent teeth from developing. If these over-retained teeth are not removed, they can result in overcrowded permanent teeth.
Crowded teeth rarely cause pain or discomfort. In many cases, people choose to correct crowded teeth as a personal choice, not a medically mandated one. Overcrowded teeth may appear unsightly and embarrassing to some.
In other cases, overcrowding in the mouth can lead to problems with chewing, biting, and speech articulation. Crowded teeth can make it difficult to properly brush and floss, which can increase your risk of gum disease and tooth decay.
Talk to your dentist or dental health care provider about treatment options for overcrowded teeth. The exact treatment will depend on the severity of the crowding and your age.
