Types of problems

      BEFORE AFTER
Premature loss
and midline
shift

This is when the center of the teeth do not correspond to the center of the face. It’s often caused by the premature loss of a baby tooth.
Ectopic tooth A tooth that grows out of position is called an ectopic tooth.
Upper cuspids are often the culprits.
Crowding Not enough room for all the teeth on the arch will result in crowding or flaring.
In severe cases teeth may have to be extracted to create enough space.
Spacing
Too much space creates unsightly
gaps between the teeth. Braces will bring the teeth back together and eliminate
the spacing.
Overbite An overbite is often caused by an underdeveloped lower jaw.
This type of problem is ideally treated during early adolescence.
Underbite

Most often caused by an overdeveloped lower jaw.

This type of problem is often hereditary and may require surgery for its correction.

Open-Bite An open bite is when the front teeth do not touch when closing your teeth together. Surgery or extractions are often needed to correct the problem.
Deep-Bite It’s as if there was an overclosure of your teeth.
In extreme cases the lower incisors may bite onto the gum of the palate.
Cross-bite When the palate is too narrow, the upper teeth will not occclude properly with the lower teeth.
Expansion is required and is best done at an early age.
