Crowded Teeth FAQs

1What are crowded teeth?
Teeth crowding, also known as (overcrowded teeth), occur when your mouth runs out of space for your growing teeth. When this happens, teeth begin to break away from alignment and crowd each other. This may cause some teeth to protrude forward or backward and cause a noticeably crooked smile.
2What causes teeth crowding?
Crowding can be caused by the late loss of primary teeth, poorly erupting teeth, and in many cases can be inherited and caused by an imbalance of jaw size in relation to tooth size.
3What is the best crowded teeth treatment?
Metal braces are the most commonly preferred method of treatment orthodontists use to correct overcrowded teeth. Due to the strength and proven effectiveness of the material, metal braces are typically the most reliable option, especially for severe crowding cases. Although metal braces are the most common route, depending on your unique case, you may be a good candidate for other options as well.
4Are crowded teeth inherited?
In many cases, yes. Crowded teeth are often caused by a genetic imbalance of jaw size in relation to tooth size. Such an imbalance causes inadequate space for natural alignment to occur, hence teeth crowding.
5Do overcrowded teeth cause speech problems?
Yes, depending on the severity of the case, crowded teeth may cause speech problems such as slurring or lisps. The reason for crowding-induced speech problems are due to the inadequate space your tongue has for speaking properly and clearly.
6Do clear aligners work for overcrowded teeth?
As long as you are deemed a good candidate for clear aligners, they can straighten crowded teeth. However, for severe cases of overcrowding, traditional metal braces may be your best option.
7Can crowding teeth cause dental health problems?
Yes, crowded teeth can make proper dental hygiene difficult and can even cause gradual tooth decay if untreated.
8Do I need braces?
If you have crowded teeth, you should set up an appointment with Dr. Kimbrough. An experienced orthodontist like Dr. Kimbrough can thoroughly assess your dental profile and suggest the best course of treatment.
9What is the best age to get braces?
Although orthodontic treatment can be beneficial at nearly any age, the ideal timeframe for the placement of braces is around the ages of 10-14. The reason this age range is best is because the head and mouth are still growing and are much more easily accepting of straightening treatments.
10Are their discreet ways to fix teeth crowding in adults?
Of course, there are great options for adults with crowded teeth looking for discreet alignment options. Call our office today and schedule an exam. Dr. Kimbrough is more than happy to assess your current dental state and recommend the best course of treatment tailored to meet your needs.
11Do braces fix crowded teeth?
In short, Yes. Traditional metal braces are the most common way to straighten crowded teeth and correct misaligned bites. Although every case is different, braces are generally the best and most effective way to correct teeth crowding.
12Will I have to have teeth pulled to correct crowding?
In some cases of crowded teeth, one or more permanent tooth extractions may need to be performed to create adequate room for your teeth to comfortably settle and benefit from the straightening process.
13Can problems with your Jaw cause crowded teeth?
Yes, jaw problems that cause teeth crowding may include:
  • Cleft lip & palate
  • Excessive pacifier use after the age of 3
  • Prolonged use of bottle-feeding
  • Thumb sucking
  • Injuries that cause jaw misalignment
  • Abnormally shaped or impacted teeth
  • Poor dental care
14Why should I have my crowded teeth straightened?
Correcting crowded teeth will not only boost your confidence but also improve your speech, dental health, and much more.
15How long does it take to fix crowded teeth?
The timeframe for correcting crowded teeth depends on each individual patient’s condition and chosen course of treatment.

17Can crowded teeth cause pain or discomfort?

18Can crowded teeth come back after braces?
Without proper care and use of retainers, it is possible for teeth to re-crowd post orthodontic treatment.
