What is crowded or crooked teeth?

Crowded or Crooked Teeth is a type malocclusion that results in irregular or uneven teeth. This happens when your jaw does not have enough space to fit in all your teeth leading to misaligned teeth. If you have dental crowding, you will see a few tilted teeth, curved teeth or slanted teeth in your mouth.

Why should you opt for crowded teeth correction?

We recommend crooked teeth treatment because the complications caused by irregular teeth extend way beyond just aesthetics.

If you have misaligned or crowded teeth, it can lead to premature wear and tear, gum diseases, and jaw joint damage. For teeth that last a lifetime, we recommend crowded teeth correction.

Complications that can arise from crooked teeth

Compromised mouth structure

Crowded teeth put pressure on your gums, teeth and jaw resulting in excessive wear and tear.

Other health issues

Dental crowding may also cause jaw strains, cracked teeth, chronic headaches or even temporomandibular joint disorder.

Speech issues

Misaligned teeth can affect the articulation of certain words and may even cause a lisp.

Difficulty while chewing

Overcrowded teeth make it difficult to chew food leading to bad digestion.

Tooth decay and gum diseases

You will find it hard to clean irregular teeth resulting in food particles being stuck in the crevices.

Self-esteem issues

A crooked teeth smile can harm your confidence and make you socially awkward.

Other teeth problems


Teeth Gap

This condition arises when there is unusual space between teeth causing food to get stuck in the spaces. Closing this gap is easy with our Aligners.



The upper teeth close far out in front of the lower teeth which causes the jaw to ache. Our aligners will push them back to perfection, relieving you of all discomfort.


Deep Bite

This happens when the upper front teeth disproportionately overlap the bottom front teeth when the back teeth are closed causing discomfort. Our aligners help solve this problem.


Open Bite

When the upper and lower front teeth don't touch each other when the mouth is fully closed, displaying an opening, it is called an ‘Open Bite’. This can be easily corrected with our aligner treatment.

Frequently asked questions


What is Dental crowding?

Dental crowding is a type of bad bite or malocclusion that occurs when your jaw is too small to accommodate all your teeth. Rather than your teeth growing into their correct positions, the teeth compete with each for space and end up growing into unnatural positions. This results in you having uneven teeth, crooked teeth and crowded teeth that are misaligned.


What happens if I don’t opt for a crowded teeth correction?

If you do leave your dental crowding untreated, it can lead to overall oral and health problems such as gum diseases, decaying teeth, speech issues, difficulty in chewing, cavities, temporomandibular joint disorders (TMD), speech issues etc. We recommend visiting one of our dental care experts to evaluate the severity of your case and understand your course of treatment.


What causes dental crowding?

There are many reasons that can lead to dental crowding such as bad repetitive behaviours like sucking your thumb, genetics, a bad diet that alters the jaw size, and injury to the jaw. Some other causes of crowded teeth are:
  • Teeth that have not fallen out naturally or Impacted teeth.
  • Your jaw is too small to fit all the adult teeth in a straight, aligned line.
  • Your natural jaw shape is not conducive to aligned teeth.


Can crooked teeth be fixed naturally?

No, crooked and crowded teeth cannot be fixed naturally. You will have to use aligners, and braces or go through surgery.


How do I know if my teeth are crowded?

If you have misaligned teeth, uneven teeth or rotated teeth, and find it difficult to chew, bite, floss or close your mouth properly, chances are you may have dental crowding. Other symptoms of crowded and crooked teeth include jaw pain, dental pain, general discomfort and a smile that does not make you happy.


What are the various treatment options for dental crowding?

  • Aligners – removable and transparent plastic trays that are firmly fitted on your teeth and apply pressure progressively achieving the perfect position
  • Braces – Metal brackets and wires threaded through them are placed on your teeth to gradually apply pressure and align your teeth over time.
  • Veneers and cosmetic recontouring: Unlike the above orthodontic treatments that will move your teeth to their desired positions, cosmetic dental work does not shift your teeth. Instead, it alters the aesthetics of your teeth, creating the appearance of a straighter smile.


Do Crowded Teeth Get Worse with time?

Yes, crowding worsen over time as there is a lack of space in your jaw leading to your teeth competing for their position. This continuous competition by misaligned teeth leads to severe crowding and overlapping, impacting your oral hygiene which eventually has serious consequences on your health.


Why are clear aligners the preferred dental crowding treatment?

Dezy invisible aligners are more suited than other traditional forms of dental treatments as they are invisible, removable, and show quick results with fewer trips to the orthodontist as compared to braces. Mild dental crowding can be treated in about three months while a severe crowding case may take up to a year and a half.

Very Convenient

It's hassle free. Will definitely recommend it to my friends and family. What I liked the most was that they sent a dentist to my home for the free scan. It was very convenient and the orthodontist explained the treatment process in detail during the consultation.

Professional dentist

I came to them to fix my gapped teeth. Got to say, it was a satisfying experience. Their dentists are super helpful and professional. Throughout the scanning process she was describing every step in detail and made sure I am comfortable. Got my first set of aligners at my doorstep on time. Great experience so far.

Dezy made it so easy for me

Pretty easy to book the scan. The scanning was scheduled for the next day. Dr Priyal visited my home on time and was very efficient with the whole process. The payment process is hassle-free. Although I made full payment, I feel the EMI options make it easier for people to pay for their treatment. Overall a great experience.
