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.
