Crowded Teeth

Crowded teeth, also called overcrowding or dental crowding, occur when there is not enough space in the mouth to accommodate the permanent teeth.

Crowded teeth often look crooked or overlap each other in the mouth. They can impact the esthetics (look) of a person’s smile and also cause problems with the bite and function of the teeth.

Causes of Dental Crowding

Dental crowding can be caused by factors including:

  • Genetics (ie. size and shape of the upper and lower jaws as well as the size and shape of the permanent teeth).
  • Pre-mature loss or over-retention of a primary tooth.

Treatment Options for Dental Crowding

  • Orthodontics (braces or Invisalign®) are the most common treatment option for overcrowding. Orthodontics can correct crowded teeth, help improve the function of a person’s bite, and improve the aesthetics of their smile.
  • Traditional metal bracket braces are bonded to the teeth and wires help to move the teeth into the desired position. They're very popular in children and young adults.
  • Clear aligners or Invisalign® are a type of orthodontic treatment that corrects crowded teeth and other forms of misalignment. They are a virtually invisible alternative to braces and utilize a series of clear plastic aligners to gradually move the teeth into position.
