Orthodontic Treatment – Crowding
Crowding of teeth is one of the most common reasons to receiving orthodontic treatment and can be improved. Crowding occurs when the jawbone is too small or there is not enough space to align the teeth in arch form. It can also occur when there is atopic eruption. Canines are commonly the tooth affected, as it is last to erupt in the anterior region and there is a lack of space.
There are two orthodontic methods to treat crowding; 1. Orthodontic treatment after extraction, 2. No extraction orthodontic treatment. Tooth extraction prior to orthodontic treatment must be carefully discussed as there may be changes to the oral environment after an abrupt extraction. Canines or the premolars are commonly extracted as it does not affect the aesthetic aspect. Orthodontic treatment without extraction and the lips are only slightly protruded, the maxilla (upper jaw) can be expanded to accommodate the alignment of teeth.
Cases that may require orthodontic treatment due to crowding :
- Constant food impaction
- Difficulty in chewing due to crowding
- Frequent occurrence of tooth decay and gum disease
- Malocclusion due to severe crowding
Is orthodontic treatment necessary for crowding?
Crowding requires orthodontic treatment as it decreases the high possibility of tooth decay without proper management and the chance of gum disease. Treatment is not only for aesthetic purposes but also to ensure a functional occlusion is obtained and a long-time of maintenance of the oral cavity is possible
Zeah Doctor’s GuideDr. Yoon Sun Kim (Director)
Decision to extract is heavily based on the type of orthodontic treatment required.
Decision to extract needs to consider three aspects; 1. Severity of crowding, 2. Space required to align teeth, 3. Protrusion of the lips. Extraction will only be performed if there is a need. If the crowding is not severe and the lips are not severely protruded, the maxilla can be expanded to align the teeth into arch form.
