Common Teeth Problems

Some of the most common teeth problems requiring orthodontic treatment include:

  • Protruding upper front teeth
  • Crowding – people with narrow jaws often lack enough space for their teeth, resulting in the crowding of too many teeth into too small a space
  • Impacted teeth – adult teeth may not come through properly if they grow in the wrong position
  • Asymmetrical teeth – the centre of the upper and lower teeth don’t match, giving teeth an asymmetrical or crooked appearance
  • Deep bite – the upper teeth cover the lower teeth too much
  • Reverse bite – the upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth
  • Open bite – the upper and lower front teeth don’t meet when the mouth is closed (an open bite is often a result of a child sucking their thumb over a long period of time)
