Common Problems

Some of the most common problems we see in our office are described below. Give us a call if you or your loved one is experiencing any of these. We have the latest treatment technologies to correct dysfunctions and allow your beautiful smile to shine through!

Overbite

When the upper front teeth extend out and over the lower front teeth. Sometimes this can cause the lower teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.

Upper Front Teeth Protrusion

When the upper teeth extend too far forward, or the lower teeth do not extend far enough forward. Both the function and appearance of your teeth are affected by this type of bite.

Openbite

When the upper front teeth and the lower front teeth don’t overlap. This type of bite interferes with proper chewing and may cause undesired habits such as tongue thrusting.

Crossbite

When the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth. Crossbite can cause misaligned jaw growth as well as teeth stratification.

Crowding

When teeth don’t have enough room to emerge from the gum. We can sometimes avoid having to remove any teeth by using jaw expansion.

Spacing

When a tooth or teeth is missing, Spacing problems can occur. However sometimes Spacing is only a surface (cosmetic) issue.

Dental midlines not matched

When the back bite does not fit and match correctly. This may negatively proper tooth and jaw function.
