Dental crowding is perhaps the most common of orthodontic problems. Crowding occurs when the size of the teeth are larger than the total size of the jawbone holding the teeth. When the jaw is too small, the teeth are forced to move toward each other. 

Minor crowding can be corrected using braces. Moderate to severe crowding may require additional treatments such as a palatal expander or, occasionally, the extraction of "extra" teeth.
