What Creates Crooked Teeth? | Pediatric Dentist San Juan Capistrano

Having crooked teeth is a form of misalignment which is also known as malocclusion. There is a lot of different causes for having crooked teeth which includes, but are not limited to:

  • Having small jaws that cannot develop correctly and end up overlapping each other.
  • Genetics meaning if either you or your partner had it before, the chances are your child might have it as well.
  • Large teeth that can cause crooked teeth even if your jaw is normal.
  • Early loss of baby teeth
  • Sucking on fingers
  • The tongue sticking out of the front teeth.


★★★★★ In my opinion, Teddy Bear Dental is one of the best Dentist Practices in San Juan Capistrano. Dr. Teddy Kim and his staff are the best. They treat you like family and have a genuine interest in your wellbeing. I used to hate going to the dentist because of feeling like I was just another patient. All of which, went away when I scheduled my first appointment with Dr. Kim.

★★★★★ I came to Teddy Bear Dental fleeing from my previous dentist, and it was the best decision. Dr. Kim was very professional and caring and listened to my concerns that were not taken into account at my previous doctor. The office was very clean and orderly and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable and you can tell they take not only dental hygiene seriously but cleanliness in general as a big priority.
