Common orthodontic problems

Much like our fingerprints, every set of teeth is unique. But that doesn't mean to say we don't share some orthodontic problems. Some of the most common ones we treat here at Signature Orthodontics are listed below. If you suffer from any of them, why not book a free appointment with us and we can talk you through the treatment process. 

Crowding

Crowding

Do your teeth overlap one another? This is a sign there isn't enough space in your mouth to accommodate all of your teeth. Crowding can cause damage to your teeth and gums so it pays to have treatment. 

 
 

Spacing

Spacing

Do you have big gaps between your teeth. This is a sign there is too much room in your mouth. Orthodontic treatment can help to close these gaps, which will prevent food from getting stuck between them and leading to poor oral health. 

 
 

Overbite

Overbite

Do your top teeth sit out past your bottom teeth when you bite? This is known as an overbite and can affect the way you chew food, thus potentially leading to digestive issues. 

 
 

Underbite

Underbite

Do your bottom teeth sit in front of your top teeth when you bite? If so, this is known as an underbite. It's one of the most common orthodontic problems we see, and one that we can fix with great results. 

 
 

Open bite

Open bite

When you bite your teeth do they meet in the middle? If they don't, this is known as an open bite. Why not book a free appointment with us so we can talk you through your treatment options to fix this.
