Spark Aligners — a Teeth Crowding Treatment*

Teeth crowding is a common orthodontic issue characterized by a lack of space for all of your teeth to fit comfortably within your mouth.1 Over time, your teeth may become twisted or displaced because there isn’t enough room. Teeth crowding treatments are essential to prevent any lasting damage to your teeth and gums.1

Causes of Crowding

There are several causes for teeth crowding, including:1

  • Improper tooth eruption
  • Late or early loss of primary teeth
  • Overly large teeth
  • Growth of extra teeth

With professional orthodontic supervision, Spark Aligners
may be able to help you fix crowded teeth.

Side Effects of Teeth Crowding

Besides the cosmetic downsides of teeth crowding, this type of orthodontic issue has other negative side effects. Twisted and displaced teeth can prevent proper cleaning of every surface and result in dental decay.1 Teeth crowding may also increase the chance of gum disease, make it hard to chew properly, and even prevent you from closing your mouth completely.1

Orthodontic Solutions to Overcrowding

There are several options for crowding treatment, some of which are more invasive than others. If there is enough room in your mouth to space out your teeth evenly, Spark Aligners can be an effective teeth crowding treatment.* In some cases, surgery is needed to remove teeth and create space.
