Don't let discomfort dictate your life!
Whatcauses tooth pain and crowding?
Tooth pain and crowding can result from a variety of factors:
- Tooth Misalignment: Crowded or overlapping teeth can lead to discomfort and bite issues.
- Tooth Decay and Gum Disease: These can contribute to both pain and misalignment.
- Jaw Pain and TMD: Issues with jaw alignment and function can cause discomfort and exacerbate crowding issues.
At Laser Dentistry of Erie, we understand how these issues can affect your daily life and offer tailored, effective solutions.

FAQs about tooth crowding and jaw pain
Can tooth crowding worsen over time if not treated?
Yes, if left untreated, tooth crowding can worsen. This progression can lead to increased difficulties in oral hygiene, higher risks of dental issues, and potentially more severe jaw pain. Early treatment with options like Invisalign can prevent these complications.
What are the signs that I might need an extraction due to crowding?
Signs that an extraction might be necessary include severe tooth overlap, difficulty maintaining oral hygiene due to crowding, or experiencing pain and discomfort. An examination at our clinic can help determine if extractions are the best solution for your case.
After an extraction or Invisalign treatment, how long will it take to see improvement in jaw pain?
Improvement in jaw pain can vary depending on your case. Some patients may notice relief soon after beginning Invisalign treatment or following an extraction, while others may experience gradual improvement over time as their teeth adjust and align properly.
