Why Do Adults Develop Crooked Teeth?

Why Do Adults Develop Crooked Teeth?

why do adults develop crooked teethA child’s first set of teeth (primary teeth, or baby teeth) can become crooked as they develop, and could require interceptive treatment to straighten them so they grow properly. In adults, however, permanent teeth are fully developed, and even though they may have always been straight, adult teeth can wind up crooked for several other reasons.

The good news is that, even as an adult, you still have options for straightening crooked teeth and restoring the beautiful, symmetrical smile of your youth. The even better news is that, for many patients, straighter teeth can be achieved without the need for conventional, conspicuous metal braces.
