When it comes to dental misalignment, the most common of them are overbites. Underbites, on the other hand, are seen less often. However, overbites and underbites are not the only dental misalignment issues affecting patients around the world. Here are some of the lesser known conditions that can be treated by the experts at Ragan Orthodontics.
When your upper teeth overlap your lower teeth, you have an overbite, while the opposite is true of an underbite. When it comes to crossbite, however, some teeth lack proper alignment with either the lower or the upper sets; these misaligned teeth end up tilting either outwards or inwards.
With crowding, the teeth have difficulty growing correctly out of the gum as a result of congestion. Crowding is a problem that brings many people to our orthodontist in Dallas as it can easily give rise to other dental problems, especially as overcrowded teeth are hard to clean properly.
This is a space between the upper and lower front teeth, which apart from making it difficult to chew correctly, also results in jaw deformities. At Ragan Orthodontics, we work with you every step of the way to make sure you receive the best possible treatment for this dental misalignment.
There are many factors responsible for dental spacing problems such as missing teeth or even thumb-sucking. However, unnecessary spaces between teeth can be accountable for a host of dental issues including inflammation, bleeding, loose teeth and swelling, among others. When the spacing problem goes untreated for a long time, it could lead to jaw damage.
