Why do some of my teeth look longer than others?


Teeth come into or erupt into the mouth until they hit or occlude with something usually an opposing tooth. Selected tooth loss and bite discrepancies can be contributing factors to why this may happen. For example if a lower molar is removed, the upper molar no longer has something to hit when you chew and bite down. Over time the upper molar will drift into (super erupt) your mouth until it reaches something such as your lower gum tissue.
