Common Problems


Upper Front Teeth Protrusion

The appearance and function of your teeth are impacted by this type of bite. It is characterized by the upper teeth extending too far forward.

Overbite

The upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth, sometimes causing the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth. This is the most detrimental orthodontic problem causing serious health problems.

Crossbite

The upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, which may cause tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.

Openbite

Proper chewing is impacted by this type of bite, in which the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap or touch. Openbite may be caused by a number of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting and thumb sucking.

Other Problems

Crowding

Crowding occurs when teeth have insufficient room to erupt correctly. Crowding can often be corrected by expansion, and many times, tooth removal can be avoided.

Spacing

Spacing problems may be caused by missing teeth, or they may only be a cosmetic or aesthetic issue.

Dental midlines not matched

This type of problem is caused when the back teeth do not fit and match appropriately, which may negatively impact jaw and proper dental function.
