When teeth are crooked and so close together that they begin to overlap, it’s known as overcrowding. This common orthodontic issue can cause an uneven smile and an increased risk of oral health issues. We’re proud to offer numerous treatments such as braces and Invisalign that can help straighten your pearly whites out and realign your smile.
Too much space between the teeth can lead to just as many problems as not enough space. One or more gaps between your teeth can cause you to feel self-conscious about your smile and put your teeth at risk of chipping or cracking. Our personalized treatments can gently bring your teeth closer together to eliminate these spaces and give you a smile that you’re proud to show off.
If the top teeth come out too far in front of the bottom teeth, they will likely be exposed to excess wear and tear. Over time, this can lead to weakened teeth that are vulnerable to damage, decay, and discoloration. This is called an overbite, and many of our treatments are designed to carefully realign the jaws and fix this common bite issue.
On the other hand, if the bottom teeth rest in front of the top teeth, they’re more likely to chip and crack. In addition, this bite problem can negatively influence the appearance of your smile and your ability to comfortably move your jaw. With the help of one of our highly trained orthodontists, we can bring your lower jaw back into the proper position for a more comfortable and functional bite.
A crossbite is when some of the bottom teeth sit in front of the lower teeth. This uncommon mix of overbite and underbite places extra stress on the jaw joints, which can lead to problems like stiffness, soreness, and TMJ dysfunction. Thankfully, we can design a custom orthodontic treatment plan that carefully realigns your smile for a healthier bite.
Another uncommon bite issue is an open bite, where the top and bottom teeth don’t touch at all when the mouth is closed. As such, this can gradually wear down and weaken your molars and premolars, leaving them far more susceptible to fractures and infections. With one of our specialized orthodontic treatments, we can help bring your teeth closer together and even out your smile.
Sometimes when a child’s permanent teeth are coming in, their adult canine teeth become impacted or stuck in the jaw. This simply means that there isn’t enough room for these teeth to fully erupt, and therefore they become stuck partway through the gums. With the help of one of our specialized orthodontic treatments for children, our talented team can help make space for the incoming tooth or teeth and bring the impacted canine into position.
