ORTHODONTIC CONDITIONS

OPEN BITE

It’s best to catch this type of bite early.  If your child has a thumb sucking habit, the upper and lower teeth eventually grow apart.  This type of bite can be an aesthetic concern and may affect speech development and mastication

 

DEEP BITE

When the upper teeth overlap the bottom teeth and the chin appears set back in profile. Its our genes that usually dictate this bite but with timely orthodontic treatment, this type of bite can be properly corrected

 

CROWDING

Usually, a combination of a small jaw and large teeth, crowding can take on may forms.  Even if aesthetically, the look of your smile is pleasing, crowding can put your teeth at a significant risk of gingivitis and periodontitis.  Crowding can also increase your risk of cavities; all good reasons to straighten as soon as recommended by the Orthodontist
