Common Orthodontic


These are some of the problems we routinely see, and routinely fix. We love what we do!

Crooked Teeth

Crooked teeth are usually crowded teeth. When there is not enough space, they crowd and become misaligned.


Spaces between the teeth can occur for a variety of reasons including small sized teeth, a low maxillary anterior frenum, proclined incisors or oral habits.

Deep Bite

A deep bite is an increased overbite, which is the amount of overlap between the upper and lower front teeth. This can cause crowding, difficulty eating, jaw pain, and tooth wear. 

Excessive Overjet

This is a bite where the upper incisors protrude beyond the lower incisors

Open Bite

An open bite is where the front teeth do not touch when the jaw is closed. This can lead to speech impediments, difficulty eating, and tooth wear.


This is a bite where the upper incisors are behind the lower incisors


This is a condition where the upper teeth bite on the inside of the lower teeth. This can cause tooth wear, jaw pain, and bone loss. Crossbites are most predictably treated in childhood.

Impacted Teeth

This is a condition where an erupting permanent tooth became stuck and did not fully erupt. This most commonly happens with canines. 

Uneven Gums

This is a condition where the gums are not symmetric on the upper incisors. This can be due to tooth position, asymmetric tooth wear, or gum asymmetries.

Narrow Upper Arch

This is a condition where the upper arch is constricted. It is often associated with crowding, crossbites, and mouth breathing.

Jaw Pain

Jaw pain can be associated with clicking and popping in the joint, tinnitus, sore muscles, lock-jaw, and migraines. A bad bite may contribute to these problems
