Common Problems

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.

It is the degree of vertical overlap of the upper and lower front teeth has with each other.  In the extreme, lower front teeth bite in to the roof of the mouth.

The upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, which may cause tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.

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.

Other Problems

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.

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

This type of problem is caused when the back bite does not fit and match appropriately, which may negatively impact jaw and proper dental function

Flared teeth emerge when there is excessive forward angulation of the teeth, often due to thumb-sucking, genetics, or previous dental conditions. This issue can typically be corrected with orthodontic braces or aligners, helping to realign the teeth into a more natural position without the need for extractions.
