Issues Frequently Addressed at Legendary Smiles

Many oral problems can be solved with proper diagnosis and treatment. Some of the most common include:

  • Under Bite – Characterized by the extension of the lower jaw and teeth far enough to sit in front of the upper teeth.
  • Spacing – Missing teeth or cosmetic spacing problems.
  • Protrusion – Over extension of the upper teeth, or under extension of the lower teeth, which affects the appearance or function of your teeth.
  • Crowding – Identified by insufficient room for all teeth to erupt properly from the gums.
  • Cross Bite – Upper teeth sitting inside lower teeth, commonly leading to tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.
  • Over Bite – Upper teeth extending far enough that the lower teeth make contact with the roof of the mouth.
  • Open Bite – Refers to the upper and lower teeth meeting without an overlap, which may result in unwanted habits such as tongue thrusting.
  • Midlines – If the back teeth do not meet correctly, negatively impacting jaw and dental function.

All of these conditions are treated daily in our office with a variety of treatment options.
