The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that patients first be seen at age 7. While it is rare that we actually treat patients at such a young age, the message is clear- its great to meet our patients early in their dental development.
While some patients will wait for their dentist to refer them to our office, this is not necessary. You can always call us directly, without a referral and we’ll be happy to provide you with a complimentary orthodontic screening.

Here are some examples of orthodontic problems that we correct. Most of these problems are associated with periodontal problems if left untreated.

Upper Front Teeth Protrusion

The appearance and function of your teeth are impacted by this type of bite. It is characterized by the upper teeth extending too far forward or the lower teeth not extending far enough forward.

Overbite

The upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth, sometimes causing the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.

Deep Overbite
Crossbite

The upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, which may cause tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.

Openbite

Proper chewing is impacted by this type of bite, in which the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. Openbite may cause a number of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.

Open Bite
Crowding

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.

Crowding
Spacing

Spacing problems may be caused by missing teeth, or they may only be a cosmetic or aesthetic issue.

Spacing
Dental midlines not matched

This type of problem is caused when the back bite does not fit and match appropriately, which may negatively impact jaw and proper dental function.
