Do teeth shift?


Answer by  benstac (1928)

Teeth shift over time in humans, especially during development from baby teeth to adult teeth. Teeth can also be "forced" to shift with braces, which aim for proper alignment of the teeth. They also may advise braces if someone has an over bite. It's best to get braces earlier on if needed to correct the alignment of teeth.

Absolutely! Teeth naturally shift slightly, but you should not notice any movement on teeth that are healthy. You should see your regular dentist who you see for cleanings and checkups, and have them preform an x-ray on your teeth, to make sure the root structure integrity is in tact, and there is no other problems to be aware of.

Teeth do shift but for many reasons. It could be done by orthodontist using braces to fill up the diastema,treating buck teeth or any other cause. Sometimes if the gingival condition is not good there is a tendency for the teeth to shift and become loose. If a teeth is missing the adjacent teeth slowly starts drifting/tilting towards the space.

yes they do weather you went to the dentist and had bracers put in that slowly move the teeth into place or simply if you have crowded teeth that sit on top of eachother and one is removed after a while the space will dissapear and the teeth shift into the missing space
