Some of the most common orthodontic problems we see at our office include the following:
Teeth spacing, or Crowded teeth treatment is one of the most common reasons patients seek orthodontic help. If your teeth are crooked, turned, or overlapped, your key orthodontic condition is probably crowded teeth.
In an overbite, the upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth. This sometimes causes the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.
An underbite occurs when the lower jaw extends out, resulting in the lower front teeth sitting in front of the upper front teeth. If you’re interested in under bite correction, let us find the best treatment for you!
An open bite is characterized by upper and lower front teeth that do not overlap. This often causes problems with proper chewing, and it may also contribute to other unwanted habits like tongue thrusting, and teeth wear.
In a crossbite, the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth. This may result in misaligned jaw growth, grinding and teeth malposed that eventually will need to be restored.
