Wisdom teeth have always been blamed for many problems related to oral hygiene. They are mainly accused of causing tooth movement by exerting more and more pressure on other teeth during the process of erupting. This erupting is completely responsible for the movement of other teeth and the increase in dental crowding and rotation of the anterior teeth. The term crowding is simply defined as a space which is left empty for all the teeth to fit in properly between the jaws. Due to this, you may find the teeth to be rotated or displaced. Crowding occurs when there is disharmony in the tooth- to jaw size or when the teeth are larger in size than space which is available. Crowding can be caused by many reasons that include impaction of wisdom teeth, losing primary teeth at an early stage, and much more.
What Causes Tooth Crowding
A question must be arising in your minds that how can the wisdom teeth affect the teeth in the front of your smile? Well, the answer is really simple and straight. When there is hardly any room left for the third molars to erupt without issue then there are more chances of these teeth to come in crooked shapes or in a different angle. This crookedness and excess pressure puts immense force on the surrounding teeth and also affects the teeth in the front of the mouth.
How can this issue of crowding be solved?
At Holistic Dental we have a great team of dentists and Orthodontists who will definitely provide you with the best solution. Crowding is fundamentally caused when the erupting wisdom teeth become too wide in just too little space. Now, you would like to know how this crowding can be improved. Once the process of straightening them begins, at that time it is first narrowed down by removing a tiny amount of space between each of them which is also known as called stripping. Another way of removing one or more teeth is to expand the arch or place some braces in the inner area of the mouth in some patients so that they are not visible so easily.
