ORTHODONTICS

Orthodontic treatment corrects teeth and jaws that are not positioned harmoniously for effective daily function of chewing, speaking, and smiling. 

WHO NEEDS ORTHODONTIC TRETAMENT?

If you have one or more of the following conditions, you will benefit from an orthodontic treatment.

  • Excessive Overbite-An orthodontic issue that occurs when the upper front teeth are too far forward over the lower teeth.
  • Cross-bite or Underbite- Just the exact opposite of the excessive overbite when lower teeth are located too far back from the upper teeth.
  • Open bite-When the teeth are closed in a normal relaxing position, front teeth do not come together, leaving an opening between the upper and lower front teeth. 
  • Misplaced Midline-When the center of the front teeth do not line up with the middle of your nose or the middle of the face. 
  • Spacing Problems-When there are wide Spaces or wide gaps in between the teeth. 
  • Crowding-It is the opposite of spacing problems. Crowding occurs when there's more teeth than the amount of room available in the upper or lower arch of the mouth to fit all the teeth.
