Problems caused by crooked bottom teeth
Problems happen when teeth do not line up straight.
1. Crowded teeth look like extra teeth: In severe cases, crowded teeth can look like there is an extra row of teeth – even if the normal number of teeth are present.
2. Damage to gums: Plaque is easily trapped between teeth and gums of crowded teeth, making brushing and flossing difficult.
3. Crowding gets worse over time: Teeth shift as we age. That shifting causes crowding to get worse over time - which makes getting straight teeth more difficult.
