This condition happens when there is not enough room in your jaw for your teeth to fit together normally. They can overlap with each other, twist, or move in front or behind your other teeth.
Crowded teeth are one of the most common malocclusions and often times require IPR or teeth extraction. They can make it difficult to brush and floss. The accumulation of plaque in inaccessible areas can lead to tooth decay, gum disease or a periodontal condition with symptoms such as bad breath, bleeding gums and bone loss.
