Common Orthodontics Problems

The way teeth align, and meet is known as occlusion. Usually, upper teeth rest above lower teeth when your jaw is closed and the top surfaces of molars line up. When this does not happen, it gives rise to malocclusions. Malocclusions lead to oral health complications and need the intervention of an orthodontist.

Common Orthodontics Problems

  • Misaligned teeth
  • Crooked teeth
  • Overlapped
  • Gapped teeth: Clinically termed as Diastema, it is a condition where you have a noticeable gap between teeth.
  • Crowded teeth: It is one of the most common issues noticed by the orthodontists and is defined as the dental malposition caused by lack of space.
  • Overjet: When the upper teeth protrude
  • Reverse Overjet: When the lower teeth protrude
  • Underbite: When lower teeth overlap upper teeth. The main cause of underbite is misalignment of lower jaw.
  • Crossbite: When some of the upper teeth close inside lower teeth rather than outside. This condition is mostly genetic but can also be caused if the baby continuously sucks his/her thumbs or pacifier.
