Parents often visit my clinic complaining about their kids Finger-sucking habit, and usually they are afraid from the development of serious problems in their children's jaws and teeth because of this habit. In fact, thumb-sucking habit and dental problems resulting from it are not uncommon in middle east region.
Crowded teeth or Crocked teeth is a term given to teeth when they are not aligned in their natural place in the jaw, because there is not enough space available for them.
Anterior teeth protrusion or what we call it “Protrusion” are one of most common cases in orthodontic clinics, and actually it comes after teeth crowding. Protrusion means, presence of distance more than normal between the incisal edges of upper and the lower front teeth (as this distance is supposed to be no more than 2 - 1 mm).
