Spacing problems can be caused by missing teeth. For some patients, missing teeth only pose a cosmetic issue.
Crowding occurs when teeth have insufficient room to erupt from the gum. Crowding can often be corrected by expansion, and many times, tooth removal can be avoided.
Upper Front Teeth Protrusion
Upper Front Teeth Protrusion occurs when the upper teeth extend too far forward, or the lower teeth do not extend forward far enough. Teeth appearance and function are impacted by an UpperFront Teeth Protrusion.
The upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, which can cause tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.
Proper chewing is impacted by this type of bite, in which the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. Openbite can cause unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.
Dental Midlines Not Matched
This type of problem is caused when the back bite does not fit and match appropriately. This can compromise proper jaw and dental function.
