Common Orthodontic Problems - Sokoloff Orthodontics

Common Problems

Under Bite Common Problems

 Common Problems : In an underbite, the lower jaw extends out, causing the lower front teeth to sit in front of the upper front teeth.

Spacing:

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

Protrusion:

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

Common Problems

Crowding

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.

Crossbite

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

Overbite

In an overbite, 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 in white plains.

Open bite:

Proper chewing is impacted by an openbite, in which the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. Open bites may be caused by habits such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting.

Midlines:

Dental midlines that do not match are evident when the back bite does not fit and match appropriately. This may negatively impact the jaw and proper dental function.
