What causes crooked teeth?

According to Dr. Sheridan, early primates had wear between their teeth because the natural chewing forces were so powerful then that all the teeth enamel would wear down slightly every month and year. Eventually, all teeth slowly migrated towards the front so by the age of 18 natural wear between teeth had created space for wisdom teeth. That is obviously not the case today.

Thanks to our modern world of refined foods, lack of trace minerals, allergies, bottle feeding, baby pacifiers … teeth are crowded due to smaller arches. Therefore lower front teeth crowding occurs because the lower arch is imprisoned within the upper arch or teeth become crooked after wisdom teeth come in.

Whatever caused your teeth to crowd, it can be fixed!

According to Dr. Larry White, editor of Journal of Clinical Orthodontics, "The most innovated technique developed to promote non-extraction therapy may be the ARS method championed by Dr. Sheridan."
