Crowding of Teeth
Crowding is the lack of space for the teeth to fit normally within the jaws. The teeth may be twisted or displaced.
Crowding should be corrected because it can;
- Prevent proper cleaning of all the surfaces of the teeth.
- Cause dental decay.
- Increase the chance of gum disease
- Prevent proper functioning of teeth.
- Make your smile less attractive.>
Crowding can be corrected with braces, by expansion of the arches or extraction of teeth.
Once space is created, braces will be used to to correct the crowding and align the teeth.
