Different factors can cause crowded and crooked teeth. They include
Most orthodontic issues, such as underbite, overbite and crooked teeth, are due to genetics, making them unavoidable. For this reason, dental professionals advise taking children between 7 – 8 years to the dental clinic for a special orthodontic assessment. Early detection often makes correction easier.
The baby teeth are important in determining how the adult teeth will come in. If a child loses the tooth early, the adjacent tooth may shift into the space, reducing the gap for the adult teeth to grow.
Caring for baby teeth is important, including quickly treating tooth loss and dental trauma.
Finger and thumb sucking after the front teeth have come in can make the front teeth move upward, creating an open bite. Although you may not notice the effect of sucking the thumb in the early childhood stages, it will become noticeable as the adult teeth grow.
Treating gum disease early is important because it can make the tooth loose and alter its alignment, ultimately affecting your bite.
As you grow older, your teeth may shift forward and become crowded. This may occur because the jawbone loses density as we grow older, altering its shape, which makes the teeth crowded in front.
Other causes of crooked teeth are not wearing your retainers after orthodontic treatment and injuries.
