Children are recommended to see the orthodontist by age 7. While it may seem early, this age is recommended because it is usually the time their permanent teeth start to come in.
Millions of people around the world are suffering from some kind of oral health issue or another. Whether it’s crooked teeth, irregular bites, or misaligned jaws, these conditions are common and it’s important to seek orthodontist treatment.
Yes, of course. Teeth straightening is extremely beneficial, as it aims to correct crooked teeth, underbites, overbites, open bites, cross bites, teeth gaps, and so much more.
An overbite occurs when the upper teeth protrude over the lower teeth, which is typically by a proportion of between 30-50%. The medical term for an overbite is known as an malocclusion. An overbite is apparent when a person’s teeth and jaw are not aligned properly.
A crossbite is a condition (malocclusion) that occurs when the top teeth and bottom teeth do not come together or bite in the correct position. This type of misalignment means that some of the bottom teeth are located outside the upper teeth when your jaw is closed or some of the top teeth are positioned inside the bottom teeth. The crossbite can occur in the front of the mouth (anterior) or the sides and back of the mouth (posterior).
