What Can Orthodontics Treat?
Crooked teeth are the most common reason patients seek orthodontic treatment. Braces, clear aligners, and retainers can be used to straighten teeth for a more aesthetically pleasing smile. Straightening crooked teeth can also improve a patient’s oral health, reduce your risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and painful jaw symptoms. We can even prevent crooked teeth from developing in the first place with early orthodontic treatments, also known as two-phase treatment.
Overbites, underbites, and open bites occur when the jaw does not properly align. Malocclusion can be corrected using orthodontic appliances, self-litigating braces, or ceramic braces. Treatment will vary depending on the degree of malocclusion and the personal goals and concerns of the patient.
Gaps between the teeth can cause aesthetic concerns, but may also cause malocclusion or discomfort in the bite or jaw. Gap teeth can be closed using a range of orthodontic treatments depending on the size and location of the gaps.
Malformed Jaw or Bite
Some children are born with a smaller or misaligned jaw. As the child develops, it becomes evident that the bite is too small, large or misaligned. Treating a malformed jaw early on in life can help prevent difficulty eating and in speech development.
