Common Problems

  • Underbite

    Common Problems – An underbite is characterized by the lower jaw extending out, causing the lower front teeth to sit in front of the upper front teeth.


    Spacing problems may be caused by missing or un-erupted teeth or arch length discrepancies, or they may only be cosmetic or aesthetic issues.


    Crowding occurs when teeth have insufficient room to erupt. Crowding can often be corrected with orthodontist, and many times, tooth removal can be avoided.


    This refers to a width discrepancy between the upper and lower teeth. With a crossbite, the upper side teeth sit inside the lower teeth, which may cause a shift of the lower jaw to one side.


    The upper front teeth overlap the lower teeth excessively in the vertical dimension. In severe cases, the lower front teeth may bite into the roof of the mouth.


    Proper chewing is impacted by this type of bite, in which the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. Openbite may cause several unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting. It is also caused by incorrect skeletal growth.

    Upper Front Teeth Protrusion

    The appearance and function of your teeth are impacted by this type of bite. It is characterized by the upper teeth extending too far forward or the lower teeth not extending far enough forward.

    Dental Midlines not Matched

    This type of problem is caused when the bite in the back differs from the left to the right, which may negatively impact the jaw and proper dental function.
