Overjets occur when the upper front teeth are pushed too far forward, resulting in buck teeth. They can be caused by a lower jaw that is too small, as well as habits such as thumb sucking or pacifier use.
Underbites are characterized by the lower front teeth fitting over the top front teeth. If not corrected, there will be abnormal tooth wear as well as stress on the jaw.
Overbites occur when the front teeth reach too far over the bottom teeth. The bottom teeth may bite into the roof of the mouth if not corrected.
Crossbites occur when the top teeth fit inside the lower teeth and can be caused by misalignment of the teeth or of the bone. One tooth or several tooth can be affected. If not corrected, the jaw may shift to one side and there can be lopsided jaw growth. Additionally, the enamel of the teeth will be worn down more quickly.
Protrusion occurs when the front teeth stick out. It is also commonly referred to as buck teeth. The teeth may protrude because the jaw is positioned to far forward or the lower jaw is too far back, or because the teeth have grown in at an angle. If not corrected, the upper teeth are more prone to breakage and it can be uncomfortable to close the mouth. Patients may also experience speech issues.
Crowding occurs when there is insufficient space for the teeth to align properly. This can occur when teeth are either too large, or the jaw is not large enough to accommodate all teeth. The teeth may then overlap, rotate or appear crooked. Crowded teeth are harder to clean, resulting in higher risk for cavities and gum disease.
Spacing occurs when there is too much space between the teeth as a result of missing teeth, undersized teeth, or oversized jaws. It is easier for food to get left in these spaces, leaving patients susceptible to gum disease and cavities.
Open bites occur when the back teeth fit together but the front teeth do not. This often is the result of habits such as extended thumbsucking or pacifier use, or tongue thrusting. Issues with swallowing and/or speech may occur if not corrected.
Deep bite is characterized by the top front teeth covering too much of the bottom front teeth when the mouth is closed. If not corrected, the upper teeth can bite into the gums and the lower teeth can bite into the roof of the mouth. Patients are also more susceptible to gum disease and enamel wear.
