Common Orthodontic Issues

Crowding occurs when there is not enough space in the mouth for all of the teeth to fit properly. This can cause the teeth to overlap or become twisted or crooked, making them difficult to clean and increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease.

An open bite is a type of bite problem where the front teeth do not meet when the back teeth are closed. This can be caused by thumb-sucking or tongue thrusting, leading to speech difficulties, difficulty biting or chewing, and jaw problems.

A deep overbite occurs when the upper front teeth overlap the lower front teeth too much. This can cause excessive wear and tear on the lower teeth, leading to jaw problems, speech difficulties, and other dental issues.

Lateral incisors are the teeth next to the front teeth. When these teeth are missing, they can cause spacing, crowding, or other orthodontic problems. Orthodontic treatment can help to address these issues and improve the overall appearance and function of the teeth.


Underbite beforeBefore

An underbite is a dental condition where the lower teeth and jaw stick out further than the upper teeth and jaw. This can cause difficulty chewing and speaking and can lead to dental problems.

Spacing occurs when there are gaps between the teeth. Missing teeth, small teeth, or other orthodontic issues can cause this. Spacing can increase the risk of tooth decay and gum disease and impact the smile's appearance.
