The successful correction of deviations of bite with orthodontic treatment

The situation when the connection of upper and lower teeth is not optimal is considered a deviation of bite. As an orthodontic issue it has multiple existing forms.

  • Open bite: with closed jaw there is a small gap between the upper and lower arch of teeth while both upper and lower teeth are forced outwards
  • Cross bite: upper arch of teeth is narrower than the lower one. The upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth. This results in a reverse bite relation that limits the growth of the upper jaw. This problem plays an important role in the evolution of face and can even cause the deformation of the face
  • Overjet or protruding teeth: upper front teeth are sticking out and there might be gaps in between the teeth
  • Underbite or lower jaw protrusion: the lower teeth are positioned ahead of the upper teeth. The profile is adversely affected

Bite disorders are various therefore only personalized indications can offer orthodontic treatment plans.

Orthodontic procedure is an essential element of such treatment but the involvement of other specialists into the procedures may be necessary.

The successful correction of a narrow, thin smile line with braces

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.

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 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.

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.

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.
