Treatment for Crowded Teeth with Braces & Invisalign
What is dental crowding?
Dental crowding is a type of malocclusion or “bad bite” that occurs when the mouth does not have enough space for all of your teeth to fit. When this happens, the teeth are forced to move in unnatural directions, which can lead to a number of possible complications, including tooth decay and gum disease. Dental crowding can be corrected using a variety of orthodontic treatments, including traditional metal braces or Invisalign for crowding. Visit Diamond Braces to find out the best treatment options for correcting your smile.
What causes crowded teeth?
Tooth crowding can be caused by a number of factors, including:
- Losing baby teeth prematurely
- Having extra teeth
- Abnormal tooth growth
