There are a number of reasons teeth may grow crooked, twisted, or overlapping. People's mouths are small compared to their teeth, which crowds them, and they shift. Other reasons include the upper and lower jaws of a person being malformed or not the same size. 1. Genetic inheritance: The most frequent cause of overbites, under bites, and crooked teeth is genetics. 2. The earlier than usual loss of adult or baby teeth. 3. The improper fit of the dental restorations. 4. Gingivitis and pressure on gums and teeth. 5. Misalignment of jaw posts injury. 6. Jaw or mouth tumors. 7. Standard oral health complications, like tongue thrusting and thumb, sucking. 8. Using the pacifier after three years of age, or prolonged bottle use, may also lead to crooked teeth. 9. The shape of the mouth and jaw: This is a primary reason for crooked teeth. When the size of the mouth is small, the teeth suffer overcrowding and shifts so that all the teeth in your mouth fits. It can also be possible, that the lower and the upper jaws of the mouth are not the identical size or did not form in a correct manner as it should happen. 10. Timing: The early loss of adult's teeth may result in making the teeth, which are left behind, crooked. Overcrowding of teeth can also occur when the baby teeth are replaced by permanent teeth. Teeth misalignment may occur when the adult's teeth shift and take over spots where the adult's teeth have long ago fallen out. 11. Trauma: Facial trauma or jaw injury has the effect of moving the teeth out of place. Your jaw could be misaligned due to an accident. Traumas are usually the cause of most severe instances of crooked teeth.
HOW IS CROOKED TEETH DIAGNOSED?
The orthodontist or dentist will usually conduct dental X rays and take pictures of your face from different angles, so as to show the positioning of the teeth. Panoramic X rays and Cephalometrics can also help in diagnosis. The doctor will also take impressions of your teeth for better diagnosis.
HOW IS CROOKED TEETH TREATED?
The treatment begins with an orthodontist taking x-rays, photographs and teeth impressions to determine the course of treatment. In some cases, a removable retainer is all that is needed while for other people, removal of a few teeth may be essential to treat the overcrowding of teeth and make space for the present teeth. Braces are almost always necessary.

When left untreated, crooked teeth can often lead to periodontal disease and premature wear on your enamel. Periodontal disease may also increase the risk of cardiovascular disease and other illnesses. Straighter teeth and a proper bite can help you avoid these negative effects on your health.
