Common orthodontic problems

Common orthodontic problems

Although we each have a unique set of teeth, many of us share common orthodontic problems. Below are some of the orthodontic issues we treat most often. If you are living with any of these misalignments, you can schedule a consultation with us today so we can make a treatment plan for you.

Crowding

This occurs when teeth start to fight for space. It can result in teeth overlapping each other, which in turn can make them difficult to clean.

Crowding

Spacing

The opposite of crowding, spacing occurs when teeth have gaps between them. This can cause food to get stuck in between teeth.

Spacing

Overbite

If your top teeth stick out over your bottom teeth, this is known as an overbite. It’s one of the many common orthodontic problems we can fix.

Overbite

Underbite

The opposite of an overbite, an underbite occurs when your bottom teeth stick out past your top teeth when you bite.

Underbite

Open bite

When you bite your teeth together, your front teeth should slide just over your bottom teeth. Sometimes, however, your front top and bottom teeth might not meet at all. When this happens, this is known as an open bite.

Open bite

Crossbite

If one (or more) of your lower teeth sit outside your upper teeth, this is known as a crossbite. This usually occurs along the side of your jaw.
