Narrow, thin smile when the side teeth are often remain in shadow is a phenomenon that is an aesthetics as well as anatomic issue. It may emerge in childhood but often arise in adult ages. Behind this phenomenon is the bottleneck of upper jaw but its formation may be affected by the appearance of permanent teeth.

The problem requires fairly quick treatment with orthodontic means because it may be the source of numerous health and mental issues later:

  • Aesthetic aspects: facial harmony is affected disadvantageously by the irregularity of teeth that could further influence one’s self-esteem and general feeling.
  • Health aspects: in case of long-term issues it can cause malfunction of jaw joints that requires lengthy treatments.
  • Preventive aspects: the structure of tooth could also be damaged that can result in losing the tooth and artificial replacement later.

How to resolve jaw joint problems by using orthodontics

Typical symptoms of joint-related problems you can easily notice yourself...

The solution of deep overbite with orthodontic treatments

We are referring to deep overbite when the vertical overlap of the teeth occurs. The lower front teeth bite too far up behind the upper front teeth into palate. The distance between the upper and lower arch is more than 1-1,5 mm. This phenomenon can easily be examined by you when looking in the mirror. There are different volumes of deep bite, but the bigger the distance the more serious the problem. So we need to look for solutions and the reasons are more anatomical than aesthetic.

As an adult when should I turn to an orthodontist?

The world has changed a lot in the last decade regarding orthodontic treatments in adult age. Firstly because of the new techniques that came into light and finally took the special anatomic attributes of the adult into consideration thus applying the appropriate technique for the treatments. Secondly the perception of our environment about adults wearing braces has also changed significantly. Their braces are no longer a sign of immaturity but more of a health-conscious person of high personal standards and demanding environment.

The orthodontic therapy during the exchange for permanent teeth in childhood

Children turn 5-6 years old when it is time for the replacement of the baby teeth. The result of this natural process is the arrival of permanent molars. The front teeth got their replacement shortly after: first come the lower incisors, then the uppers arrive, later the lateral incisors got the position.

In what kind of situations should we take our kids to an orthodontic specialist?

Orthodontic treatment can improve the beauty of our smile and the health of our teeth at any age. However there is an ideal time to get started. This is when one can achieve the best results over the shortest period of time at the lowest costs.
