Common Bite Problems
Over and Under BitesIf you have an overbite, which is typically called having buck teeth, or an underbite, which is typically called a bulldog bite, orthodontics can help. There are appliances that can be used to correct the dental placement and shift the teeth into a better location for your bite.
Open and Cross BitesThese issues can also be helped through the use of orthodontics. An open bite is when you have a bit of room between your top and bottom teeth when your molars come together. A cross bite is when you have some teeth that are slightly closer to the tongue or the cheek than the teeth on the opposite side. Shifting the teeth around can help improve your bite and make your smile more aesthetically pleasing.
Teeth That Are Too Close Together or Too Far ApartWhen you have spacing issues with your teeth, the study of orthodontics is the natural way of making your smile more functional and pleasing. It can help move teeth into their proper places to help line up your bite.
