Are braces for me?
If you experience any of the following orthodontic problems, you could benefit from our expert orthodontic care.
If your teeth overlap, this is known as crowding and occurs because there isn't enough room in your mouth. Orthodontic treatment could widen your arch, thus making more room, and move your teeth so they no longer have to fight for space.
If your teeth have large gaps between them, this is the opposite of crowding and is known as spacing. Orthodontic treatment can narrow these gaps and bring your teeth into position so they sit nicely side by side.
An overbite affects the jaw and occurs when the top teeth sit out past the bottom teeth when you bite. Orthodontic treatment focuses on aligning the jaws and can work to narrow this gap so your teeth sit flush with each other.
An underbite also affects the jaw and occurs when the bottom teeth sit out past the top teeth. Using orthodontic appliances we can correct this so your top teeth sit flush with your bottom teeth.
An openbite affects both the upper and lower jaws and occurs when your teeth don't meet at all when you bite. As another of the most common orthodontic problems we see, this can be easily corrected with a robust treatment plan.
