invisalign west jordanMost people think that simple cases of crooked teeth are the main issues that orthodontists deal with. However, there are many different types of bite problems, misalignments, and spacing issues that can come up. Our specialist for Invisalign® in West Jordan explains some common orthodontic issues that patients are treated for in our office!

Malocclusions

Malocclusion is a condition where the teeth do not fit together properly, otherwise known as a bad bite. There are different types of malocclusion. Improperly fitting teeth can be genetic, or a result of thumb-sucking and mouth breathing as a child.

Types of malocclusions we treat:

  • Overbite: the upper front teeth extend over the lower front teeth
  • Crossbite: the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth
  • Open bite: the upper and lower teeth do not overlap
  • Underbite: the lower jaw is extended, forcing the lower teeth to sit on top of the upper teeth
  • Protrusion: the upper teeth are extended forward, impacting bite function

Malocclusions can be treated by our orthodontists with a variety of treatment options, from traditional braces to corrective surgery, if necessary.

Crowding, Wear, and Periodontal Disease

Crowding is a problem that most people are familiar with–the teeth simply didn’t have enough space to grow in, forcing them together and making them crooked. This can be corrected with expansion and braces.

Excessive tooth wear is something that orthodontic patients sometimes experience. Malocclusion can cause patients to grind or clench their teeth in reaction to the misalignment. This can lead to premature wearing of enamel, possible tooth decay, and periodontal disease.

Treatments

Taking care of these issues as early as possible is important for the most successful treatment outcomes. There are various treatments that can be offered for your specific problem, such as:

  • Metal braces
  • Invisalign®
  • Expanders
  • Oral surgery

Depending on your specific case, our orthodontist will work with you to get you the perfect treatment plan!
