Dental crowding is not just a cosmetic flaw. Dental crowding is sure to give you gum and other periodontal tissue problems. Crowded and misplaced teeth are particularly vulnerable to decay due to the constant plaque accumulation. In this case, we have a kind of a vicious circle: plaque causes tooth decay and inflammation of the gums due to dental crowding. This circle can be broken only by an experienced orthodontist. Orthodontic treatment will allow you to get not only beautiful, but also healthy smile. Ideally located teeth are easier to clean at home. Besides that, tooth natural self-cleaning will improve, too. There are various ways of correcting dental crowding, but the most effective is orthodontic treatment, which involves using braces.
Most importantly, nowadays dental crowding can be corrected without tooth extraction. That is, now you do not need to choose even teeth over a complete set of teeth. A modern experienced orthodontist can let you have both: smooth and beautiful teeth with a complete set of teeth. Tooth removal doesn't speed up the process of dental crowding correction, it contradicts the basic principles of orthodontic treatment. Dental crowding is quite rare per se, without any orthodontic abnormalities. Dental crowding is often accompanied by a deep bite, however, other types of malocclusion can accompany dental crowding as well. When treating dental crowding an orthodontist should not only eliminate crowding of teeth, but also correct the bite. We cannot but notice that bite correction is the main functional task of an orthodontist.
