Common Problems



BEFORE TREATMENT AFTER TREATMENT
Crowding




This occurs when teeth do not have enough room to erupt. Appropriate expansion can correct crowding, most times without tooth removal. 

Spacing




Most of the time spacing is an aesthetic concern, but sometimes spacing can mean missing teeth.

Overbite




Upper front teeth cover too much of the lower front teeth. Many times, the lower front teeth bite into the roof of the mouth.

Open bite




The upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. We often see habits and tongue thrusting with this bite. Proper chewing is definitely affected.

Crossbite




This is when the upper teeth fit inside the lower teeth. Often times, we see unfavourable jaw growth and excessive tooth wear with untreated crossbites.

Protrusion of Upper Front Teeth




This type of bite can result from the upper teeth being too far forward or the lower teeth being too far back.
Function and aesthetics are affected with this bite.

Dental midlines not matched




This usually indicates that the back bite does not match properly. Function may be negatively affected by this type of malocclusion.
