Lack of space causes this. It happens a lot to children that their permanent teeth come before the milk tooth fall out. To be sure, ask the dentist if there is a problem. Most of the time this is no problem at all and the teeth will adjust in time. When this happens to adults, it is a sure sign the jaws are too small to support all teeth. Which could be a problem in case the teeth are so close together that it's hard to keep them clean enough.
