The first signs of crowded mouth are:-
- Constantly open mouth
- Eating noisily with their mouth open
- Grinding their teeth (awake or asleep)
- Adult teeth coming through crooked
This can be caused by:-
- Actions of the muscles in their mouth
- Mouth breathing
- Tongue thrusting
- Reverse swallowing
- Thumb or dummy sucking
Can crowded mouth be prevented or corrected? YES !
The best treatment starts early, before your child has all their permanent teeth in place! The older they get before treatment, the more complex and expensive treatment can become.
