About Crooked Teeth

Having crooked teeth is a very common situation for many people. Some people might be very self-conscious about it and others could care less. Either way, it is important to have your teeth checked by a dentist to make sure that they are, at least, in a healthy condition.

There are many different reasons as to why someone may have crooked teeth. For some people, their mouths are too small to fit all their teeth in position, so they are forced to overlap. For other people, having an overbite, underbite or crossbite may affect the position of teeth coming in. The most common way of resulting in having crooked teeth is from complications during the period where one loses their baby teeth. During this period, many actions may lead to teeth coming in the wrong direction.

Other possible causes can come from:

  • Gingivitis
  • Constant pressure on the gums/teeth
  • Injury
  • Early loss of adult teeth
  • Improper fillings
  • Tumors
  • Gum disease
