Bite Problems Orthodontics Can Fix

Many children, teens, and even adults experience discomfort and pain, speech difficulty, and loss of confidence due to the issues with their bite. Quite often, only orthodontic treatment can fix bite problems. At Orthodontic Experts, we see patients with bite problems every single day, and we have a great experience with treating them and making their smiles looking gorgeous. Therefore, we would like you to be aware of the most common types of bite issues: Underbite and Overbite An underbite can be recognized when your jaws are closed together, and your lower jaw extends out past your upper jaw. This causes your lower teeth to sit out in front of upper teeth. An overbite occurs when you close your jaws, and the upper jaw extends out past the lower jaw, causing the opposite characteristics of an underbite. Both cases require orthodontic treatment as soon as they are recognized. Spacing Problems and Crowding Spacing can be easily fixed by simple cosmetic treatment, however, large spacing problems can cause dental issues, that is why significant spacing should be addressed as soon as possible. Spacing can occur due to missing teeth, or teeth that were lost due to injuries, or adult teeth that never grew. Equally important, crowding problems can be caused by teeth growing in too tight of a space. This issue can cause strong pain because there is not enough room for teeth in your mouth. Midlines Alignment problems occur when the back of your bite does not match correctly. This can cause dental issues, difficulties chewing properly, and discomfort in general discomfort to your jaw or teeth.
