What is Crowding teeth?
Crowding teeth is when you do not have enough space for all the teeth to fit within the jaws. The teeth get displaced or rotated because they are bigger than the available space in the jaw.
Another situation that may cause the Teeth Crowding could be because of early or late loss of baby teeth, the imbalanced eruption of teeth, or even genetic reasons.
It is way more difficult to clean all the surfaces of the teeth when they are crowded and also increases the chances of having tooth decay and gum disease.
