Crowded teeth

Are crowded teeth affecting your confidence?

You’re not alone.

Many people who have crowded teeth say they struggle with their confidence, and that they find simple things like chatting with colleagues, laughing with friends, and smiling for family photos incredibly difficult.

But apart from affecting self-esteem, crowded teeth could lead to dental problems such as bite and dental function issues, tooth decay, or gum disease.

To find out more about what could be causing your crowded teeth, or to discover your treatment options, talk to our experts at Elite Orthodontics today!

What are crowded teeth?

When teeth are crowded, there is a mismatch between the size of jaws or space available in the jaws and the number or size of teeth. And when teeth are unable to fit in an even row within the mouth, they grow out of alignment, overlap, and appear irregular and crooked.

Crowded teeth – sometimes  called overcrowding – can vary in severity from mild, where one or two teeth overlap one another, to more severe crowding where most of the teeth in your jaw overlap.

How do you fix crowded teeth?

If you have overcrowded teeth, there are many treatment options available that can help.

The most popular is orthodontic treatment, with many patients opting for traditional metal braces or invisible braces, like Invisalign.

Many patients aren’t aware that cosmetic treatments like dental crowns and veneers can fix crowded teeth. So, if you’d prefer to treat crowded teeth with either of these options or explore other cosmetic options, it’s definitely something you can talk to your dentist about.

For severe teeth crowding, your dentist may recommend tooth extraction or jaw surgery to achieve straight teeth.
