Crowded teeth occur when the jawbone is small to accommodate the emerging teeth. This then results in a slanted and crooked set of teeth.
Experts claim that dental overcrowding is hereditary from grandparents to parents to their siblings. Therefore, if your ancestors experienced overcrowding, there are high chances that you may experience the same.
While many parents aren't alarmed by their children's thumb-sucking behavior, dentists claim that the activity is associated with teeth overcrowding. Thumb sucking can shift the child's teeth out of position affecting the future growth of a permanent set of teeth, hence overcrowding.
Baby Teeth Retention
In most cases, dental overcrowding is associated with baby teeth retention. The kid may experience loose teeth that require uprooting, but the tooth tightens. When one retains such a tooth, the permanent set of teeth is hindered from adequately emerging leading to crowded teeth.
One may experience a situation where their teeth grow into huge sizes leading to insufficient space for the dental arch to accommodate all teeth. The overgrown teeth strive to emerge, overlapping either on the front or behind other teeth.
