Crooked teeth can result from a combination of factors such as genetics and early loss of primary teeth. People with crooked teeth tend to feel self conscious about their smile and this may negatively impact their daily social interactions. Crooked teeth can also be difficult to clean and may be more prone to decay and gum disease. These problems can be corrected via orthodontic treatment.
