What are the causes of crooked teeth and crowding in children?
- Recent modern research has shown that mouth breathing, tongue thrusting, reverse swallowing and thumb sucking are some of the primary causes of crowded teeth and incorrect jaw development.
- Moreover allergies, asthma and an open mouth posture also contribute to incorrect jaw development.
- This is why when braces are removed teeth may regress unless poor oral habits are corrected.
In line with our Holistic philosophy, for kids we seek to address these issues and minimise the risk of regression occurring.
