Remember, every patient is different, and just because your particular case is not listed, you could very well still benefit from orthodontic treatment. If your case is not listed, schedule a first visit so that we can further discuss if and how orthodontics can benefit your smile.

Upper Front Teeth Protrusion

Upper Front Teeth Protrusion impacts not only the appearance of your teeth, but also their function. This may likely cause more serious issues with your dental health in the future. The upper teeth extending too far forward, or the lower teeth not extending far enough typically diagnose upper Front Teeth Protrusion.


Overbite is the upper front teeth extending over the lower front teeth. This often causes the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.


Crossbite is when the upper teeth sit inside of the lower teeth, causing tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.


Openbite is when the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. This greatly impacts chewing, making proper chewing impossible. It may also cause a lot of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.


When teeth have insufficient room to erupt from the gums, crowding occurs. This can often be corrected by expansion, which can help avoid unwanted removal of teeth.


Although spacing may only be a cosmetic issue, it may cause concern further down the road. Missing teeth often causes this problem.

Unmatched Dental Midlines

Unmatched dental midlines are caused when the back bite is unmatched and does not fit properly. This often negatively impacts jaw growth and proper dental function.
