We all have a unique smile. Sadly, for some of us we've tried to hide our teeth when we smile - since childhood.

Crooked and crowded teeth are known by dentists as malalignment. You may have lived with it since childhood, or it may have developed over the years. Problems with early dental development and a loss of teeth can also contribute to crooked or crowded teeth. Treatment for malalignment is available and depends on your individual situation. Orthodontics, Invisalign®, crowns or veneers are some of the treatments available.

Symptoms of crooked teeth

Crooked or crowded teeth can be mild or severe. It can be quite obvious to see from your smile, or not as noticeable if it affects teeth towards the back of your jaw. Malalignment can impact on the function of your teeth and mouth, so you can experience other symptoms too.

Crooked teeth can affect the health of your teeth, how your jaw works and can even affect your posture and balance. Some symptoms that may be present include:

  • Plaque build up
  • Tooth decay and gum disease
  • An overbite or underbite
  • Jaw pain and headaches

Causes of crooked teeth

Most often, problems such as crooked and crowded teeth, extra space between teeth, and having extra or missing teeth are genetic. Other factors can play a role too. These include injuries and accidents, thumb sucking, poor oral health and dental disease. Teeth that are lost in childhood, or as an adult, can develop problems also.

Sometimes, the resulting problem of malalignment is simply in appearance. But often, other issues can develop that affect how your teeth and jaw function. We recommend talking to your dentist early to discuss potential issues and available treatments.

Get prepared

When you book at one of our dental practices for crooked teeth you probably have a lot of questions and want answers as soon as possible. That’s understandable. It’s useful to think ahead about what your dentist will need to know to assess and treat your teeth.

Generally your dentist will ask you about your medical history and then thoroughly examine your mouth, teeth, gums, jaw, tongue, throat, sinuses, ears, nose and neck. You may also need an x-ray, depending on the condition of your teeth.

Your dentist will ask you some questions about your teeth, such as:

  • What are you unhappy about?
  • Do you have any pain?
  • Do your crooked teeth create problems when you're eating?
  • Do you have any problems eating?

Think about your answers to these questions before your appointment. Being prepared can speed up the diagnosis.
