Common orthodontic issues seen by Dr. Payam Bostani
- Poor dental alignment. If there are bite problems, patients may experience several issues with their smile, including breakage of the natural teeth or other dental restorations such as crowns and veneers. This is because of the touch points of the upper and lower teeth. Common bite problems include crossbites, underbites, and overbites, which can all be corrected with orthodontic treatment.
- Spacing between teeth. Gaps that develop between the teeth can be unsightly and cause improper bite alignment. By repositioning the teeth into proper alignment, these issues can be resolved, and patients can feel more confident in the appearance of their smiles.
- Misalignment of teeth. Misaligned teeth can contribute to a number of issues, including dental decay, periodontal disease, and TMJ pain. Orthodontic treatment is used to correct misalignment so that the teeth are correctly positioned for optimal health and the appearance of the smile.
- Overcrowding. In some situations, patients may have overcrowding of the teeth in the smile. This can cause severe misalignment of the teeth because there may not be enough room for them to fit. In situations like this, the dentist may suggest palate expansion or even the permanent removal of a specific number of teeth to make room to realign the rest within the dental arch to create a proper bite.
