Sometimes in the early age of tooth development, teeth do not come in perfectly straight. This can also be a result of a child sucking on their thumb in early childhood, as well as the heavy use of a pacifier as an infant or toddler.
Teeth that are not aligned properly can cause many problems, including jaw pain, problems in chewing or talking, infections of the mouth, and difficulty cleaning the teeth.
Crooked teeth can be fixed through braces and other cosmetic procedures. Take a look at this article from WhyBraces.com about the importance of braces. The article covers common needs including: Bite Correction, Teeth Straightening, Cosmetic Reasons, Breathing Problems, and more.
