Teeth are seldom evenly spaced and the bones of the jaw are not always perfectly alighted. In fact, because two separate sets of genes (one from each parent) control the development of the teeth and jaws, it is common for mismatches to occur in the mouth. Beyond inherited irregularities, there are problems that arise as the result of abnormal eruption and tooth development. Injury, decay, disease and habits may also contribute to forcing the teeth into less-than-ideal positions.
In any case, the orthodontist is expert at aligning the teeth and jaws of both children and adults.
