Crowding is a condition which occurs when teeth have insufficient room to erupt from the gum. It is one of the most common reasons that patients seek orthodontic intervention. Crowding can be unavoidable in some patients, caused either by the size of the jaws, the size of the teeth or other factors
Oftentimes, crowding can be corrected by expansion, and many times, tooth removal can be avoided. Some patients require only braces, while others may benefit from a variety of expanders that can create more space in the mouth for the teeth.
