Orthodontic Disorders

Crossbite

openThis type of problem is caused when the upper teeth do not fit and match appropriately with the lower teeth. This results in the upper teeth biting inside the lower teeth, which may negatively impact jaw and proper dental function.

Openbite

openProper chewing is impacted by this type of bite, in which the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. It can be caused by improper jaw growth or from bad oral habits, such as excessive finger sucking. Openbite itself may cause a number of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.

Overbite

overThis disorder is when the upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth. Usually the upper and lower teeth do not even touch when biting down. Sometime this causes the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.

 

Overjet

jetThe appearance and function of your teeth are impacted by this type of disorder. Overjet is characterized by the lower teeth not extending far enough forward, making the upper teeth appear to extend too far forward. It can be caused by incorrect alignment of molars or an imbalance of the upper and lower jaws. Overjet can also be caused by excessive finger sucking or tongue thrusting.

Underbite

underThis type of problem occurs when the lower teeth and jaw extend too far forward, causing the upper teeth and jaw to sit inside the lower. This is usually caused by misaligned jaw growth, with the lower growing too much and the upper not developing enough.
