Common Treatments

Crowding of the teeth

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.

 

Openbite: Front teeth don't touch

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.

 

Deep overbite: Lower front teeth bite into palate

Deep bites occur when the upper front teeth overlap the lower teeth.

 

Spacing of teeth

Spacing problems may be caused by missing teeth, or they may only be a cosmetic or aesthetic issue.

 

Overbite: Protruding front teeth

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.
