why do my teeth feel like they shifted?

Many reasons: Teeth can shift when when they do not have a good foundation to hold them, i.e. Good bone. They can also shift if there is a missing tooth and it looses the support of the support of the neighboring tooth. Other reasons can be a bad bite. If you had braces as a teen, sometimes teeth will shift if you didn't wear a retainer long enough. A dentist can evaluate your teeth.

Teeth shift: If you have a space, teeth tend to shift. Its a normal process. It would be better to get dental check-up to determine best options for you. Hope this helps, .

Shift: teeth naturally , albeit slowly have a tendency to shift forward over time....if you have a space it could happen faster, and if you have periodontal disease even faster. the best answer wont be obtained here, but at your dentist

They probably did: Teeth in bone are not like steel poles in concrete. Bone is a living tissue, changing constantly. Teeth depend on muscle function, health of the supporting bone and gums, integrity of the dentition, and a normal well balanced occlusion to remain straight. Please see your Dentist ASAP to determine if there is anything unhealthy going on, and if you now need straightening.

Variety of reasons: Teeth shift because of the genetics, age, grinding, bad habits, missing teeth and cavities. Best of luck.

Hard to say...: You may have periodontal disease, but that is only a guess. Call a local dentist for a full exam with radiographs... This way you will know for sure.

So... what is: the question? An overbite of a moderate amount is very common.
