The album has received generally positive reviews from critics. Loudwire praised the album's mix of old and new sounds from the band, concluding that "It's obvious Papa Roach aren’t straying too far outside of the lines of what made them so appealing in both the beginning of their career and in recent years, but at almost a quarter century into the game when so many of their peers have been forgotten, they continue to stay relevant. What’s most compelling about the band, other than their more than admirable longevity, is continually trying to find the balance between the then and the now. On Crooked Teeth, it’s by far the closest they've come to giving fans of both eras an equal helping of each, which is no easy feat."
