Common Orthodontic Problems

While a few people are fortunate enough to have their teeth grow in perfectly and not need orthodontic treatment, for most people, orthodontic treatments like braces and Invisalign are the best way to achieve a beautiful, healthy smile. There are a number of common orthodontic problems, also called malocclusions or “bad bites,” and Dr. Sarkis Euksuzian is an expert in treating all of them.

Upper Front Teeth Protrusion

In this malocclusion, the upper front teeth jut out too far past the lower front teeth. This problem can affect speech and bite function, and it also puts the teeth at an increased risk of damage from chipping or trauma.

Overbite

In this condition, the upper jaw extends past the lower jaw and prevents the teeth from fitting together correctly. In severe cases, patients may have their lower jaw bite into the roof of the mouth.

Underbite

The reverse of overbite, this condition is marked by a lower jaw that extends out forward past the upper jaw. This can impair chewing, bite function, and speech.

Crossbite

In crossbite, the lower teeth rest outside the upper teeth. This can cause tooth stratification and impair healthy jaw growth, often leading to TMJ later in life.

Openbite

Openbite is sometimes caused by maladaptive habits like tongue thrusting or prolonged thumb sucking. It’s a condition where the upper and lower teeth don’t meet when the mouth closes, often impairing speech and bite function.

Crowding

Crowding occurs when the dental arch doesn’t have sufficient space for the teeth, causing them to grow in crooked. We can correct this problem with early orthodontic treatment, using a device called a palatal expander to gently, painlessly widen the jaws and create more room for teeth.

Spacing

Spacing issues occur when there are large gaps between the teeth. Spacing problems may only be a cosmetic issue or they may present functional problems.

Mismatched Dental Midlines

In this condition, the back bite doesn’t fit together properly, impairing jaw growth and regular dental function.
