Dental braces or Invisalign treatment can be used to correct each of the following situations:
If your teeth have too much space in between them, orthodontic treatment is required to correct the issue. This situation typically occurs when teeth are missing, impacted, or protrusive, leading to more available space than you need. Abnormal tissue attachments can also lead to this problem.
Insufficient space in the mouth often causes some of the teeth to become crooked and misaligned. This situation develops when the jaw is unusually small, the teeth are oversized, or the teeth do not erupt normally.
Poor oral habits such as tongue thrusting, thumb sucking, or finger sucking can cause the front teeth to protrude significantly in front of the lower teeth. Missing lower teeth, poor alignment of the molars, and misalignment of the lower and upper jaws can also create this issue.
When the front teeth fail to overlap properly, an open bite occurs. Bad oral habits during childhood develop can cause this problem.
When the upper teeth protrude beyond the lower teeth, a deep overbite occurs, meaning the front teeth make no contact. This issue typically occurs when a discrepancy exists between the development of upper and lower jaws. It can also occur if the front teeth erupt differently.
When the lateral incisors are missing, the teeth fail to align properly. Trauma or poor eruption of the teeth can lead to this difficulty.
If the lower jaw develops more fully than the upper jaw, an underbite occurs. Flared incisors on the lower jaw or missing upper teeth can also cause an underbite to develop.
