There are many reasons why people can be insecure about their teeth. It might be because it gives an aging appearance that can make an individual look less professional or credible. The technical term for crooked teeth is “malocclusion”. Malocclusion can occurs when a child has both his baby and permanent teeth. This can result in crowding of teeth and therefore the growing teeth tend to push against each other. Crooked teeth are also hereditary, when it so happens that the mouth is small for the future permanent teeth. Unfortunately in kids, tongue thrusting and thumb sucking just worsen the problem. In adults, a missing tooth can cause the other teeth to shift its position due to the chewing forces and because of which they don’t align properly. In rare cases, crooked teeth can be the result of other medical conditions, such as cleft palate or temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorder.
