Common Causes of Crooked Teeth

Many different factors can cause crooked teeth. The most common ones are:

Poor Dental Hygiene

Poor oral hygiene habits can lead to tooth decay and gum disease When these are not managed, they can cause you to lose your teeth. As a result, the remaining ones can shift out of place and become crooked.


Crooked teeth can be hereditary. If your relatives have or had these, you might also be more likely to have them.

Childhood Habits

Prolonged thumbsucking, tongue-thrusting, and the use of pacifiers can cause crooked teeth. These habits put pressure on the teeth, which can make them move out of place.

Early Loss of Baby Teeth

If temporary teeth are lost too early, the remaining ones may shift and take up the space for permanent teeth. As a result, they can come in crooked.

Frequently Asked Questions About Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth are not just an aesthetic concern. They can also lead to many dental problems. If you’re unhappy with your smile, it can significantly impact your confidence and self-esteem.

Crooked teeth can make it hard for you to clean your teeth properly and can give rise to dental complications. In severe cases, they can cause an improper bite, which leads to temporomandibular (jaw joint) muscle problems, pain, and headaches.

No, unfortunately, crooked teeth rarely straighten on their own. Without proper intervention, they will not improve over time. They may even get worse as you age. That’s why it’s best to seek professional dental treatment if you are experiencing problems with them.

If crooked teeth are not managed, they can:

  • Trap food and plaque, leading to tooth decay and gum disease.
  • Make it difficult to brush and clean your teeth properly.
  • Affect your self-esteem and confidence.
  • Cause an improper bite leading to TMJ problems, jaw muscle pain, and headaches.
  • Make it hard to speak and chew properly.
  • Cause excess wear and tear on your teeth.

It will depend on the type of treatment and the severity of your crooked teeth. Dental crowns and veneers can be done in as little as two visits over a few days or weeks. There are same-day services for teeth that need only minor straightening.

However, other procedures, like smile makeovers and clear aligners, may take much longer. Clear aligners need to be worn for several months to a year. Smile makeovers may involve complex procedures that take a few months to complete. 

If you want to know how long your treatment will take, schedule a consultation with the friendly dentists at Dentalcare of Forrestfield.
