Is braces treatment right for you? Modern orthodontic technology, and in particular Invisalign® treatment, is clinically proven to correct a broad range of teeth issues, from mild to complex cases. Below are some well-known bite issue examples that can be corrected with the use of our braces options.
Crowding of the top teeth, bottom teeth, or all of your teeth can occur when there is not enough room in your jaw. If left untreated, the crowding of teeth can get worse, and this can create problems for your oral hygiene routine as plaque can build up. There is also a risk of tooth decay and gum disease.
Spaced and gaps
Spacing problems between teeth can happen with the continued abnormal growth of the jawbone. If you suffer from missing teeth, then this can cause teeth to shift from their usual position because of the extra space. Very spaced, or gappy teeth, can lead to gum problems and periodontal disease.
A crossbite is the misalignment of the jaws when you bite. It causes one or more of the upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth. Crossbite can be due to abnormal tooth eruption, thumb-sucking, or even hereditary, and it create dental issues such as wearing down teeth, bone loss, and gum disease.
An overbite is also known as an overjet of the teeth. It is when the top teeth extend over the bottom teeth. This issue can be caused by bad oral health, over or under development of the bone supporting the teeth, or even genetics. It can lead to wearing down of teeth, gum irritation, or even painful jaw problems.
An underbite is when the lower teeth and jaw distends past the top teeth when you bite. It can be caused by an undergrowth of the top jaw, or an overgrowth of the bottom jaw. But in either case, an underbite can lead to painful jaw problems, and tooth wear as it interrupts the normal bite.
An open bite is when the upper and lower front teeth do not make contact with each other to achieve a bite. It can be caused by excessive thumb-sucking as a child, or even a genetic abnormal jaw structure, and can result in painful/poor chewing habits, a speech disorder, or even lead to temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ).
