  • 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 or the lower teeth not extending far enough 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.

    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. Openbite may cause a number of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.

    Other Problems

    Crowding
    Crowding occurs when teeth have insufficient room to erupt from the gum. 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 bite does not fit and match appropriately, which may negatively impact jaw and proper dental function.
