Orthodontist Treatments and Services

Underbite
This type of bad bite involves the lower (mandibular) front teeth to sit in front of the upper front teeth. This is usually caused by the overgrowth of the lower jaw.

Overbite
This exists when the upper (maxillary) front teeth extend and sit in front of the lower front teeth significantly. This overlapping can cause the lower front teeth to bite the roof of the mouth.

Crossbite
This bite irregularity involves the alignment of each tooth to either be closer to the cheek or tongue. The typical appearance shows certain teeth to cross each other, hence, the name.

Openbite
In an openbite, the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. Usually, it is caused by thumb sucking or tongue thrusting during a child’s developmental years.

Spacing
Certain teeth have small to large gaps in between. It may be caused by missing teeth or tooth growth problems. Though in most cases it is simply a cosmetic issue, it may still affect the way you talk.

Crowding
Simply put, too many teeth in the mouth with too little room. There is not enough room for the normal set of adult teeth caused by missing teeth, extra teeth, impacted teeth, or irregular-shaped teeth.
