Misalignment of the teeth leading to malocclusion can cause a series of oral issues including crowded teeth and more. This hinders the performance of vital functions including talking, chewing and others. This condition is also characterised by overjet which does not let your teeth fit into your mouth in a proper manner.
HOW IS CROWDED TEETH DIAGNOSED?
Crowded teeth are typically diagnosed through routine dental exams. Your dentist will examine your teeth and may perform dental X-rays to determine if your teeth are properly aligned. If malocclusion is detected, it will be classified by its type and severity.
HOW IS CROWDED TEETH TREATED?
Treatment of crowded teeth may be done based on the diagnosis. Some cases may require teeth extraction to make space for the crowded teeth. Braces may be fitted for correcting teeth alignment. Reshaping, recapping, and capping of teeth also may be done to correct teeth alignment. Wires or plates may be used for correcting the jaw bone
