Crowded teeth

They are one of the most common bite problems that orthodontists attempt to correct. Tooth crowding occurs when there is not enough space in the mouth for all the teeth, causing them to start shifting, rotating or overlapping.

Crowded teeth can lead to various health problems, including:

  1. Difficulty cleaning teeth: crowding can make it difficult to effectively clean teeth and gums, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
  2. Improper bite: Crowding of teeth can lead to improper bite, which in turn can cause jaw pain, headaches and other problems.
  3. Aesthetic issues: crowded teeth can cause dissatisfaction with the appearance of the smile, which can affect self-confidence and self-esteem.

Treatment of crowded teeth depends on the degree of crowding and the age of the patient. In younger children, removable braces can be used to create more space for the teeth. In adults and older children, fixed braces or Invisalign technology may be more effective. In some extreme cases, it may be necessary to extract one or more teeth to create more space.

It is important to remember that each case is different, and the decision on treatment should be made by an experienced orthodontist after a thorough examination of the patient's bite.

At Stomo Clinic, we use orthodontic trays to treat malocclusions like crowding. Depending on the degree of crowding, the clear plastic trays are adjusted to the patient's teeth and gradually move the teeth into the desired positions. Depending on the patient's malocclusion, our orthodontist, may decide to use additional orthodontic techniques to relieve crowding.

Orthodontic overlays are often chosen as a treatment option for several reasons:

  1. Aesthetics: The overlays are nearly invisible, making them more discreet than traditional braces.
  2. Comfort: They don't have metal wires or hooking parts, which makes them more comfortable to wear.
  3. Hygiene: The caps can be easily removed for eating and cleaning teeth, making it easier to maintain oral health during treatment.
