Common Dental Problems aren’t just a simple case but rather a shared experience – something most of us can relate to because, well, perfect teeth are a rare find. Throughout history, people have dealt with issues like crooked teeth, crowded smiles, and other dental quirks. These things have been part of our oral health story for a long time.
So why should you care about these common dental hiccups? Because they affect your daily life more than you might think. They impact how you chew your food, how clearly you speak, and even how confident you feel about your smile.
But here’s the good news: Orthodontic treatment performed by Dr. Sogole Moin can improve both the functionality of your bite and the appearance of your smile.
Below are some examples of the most common orthodontic problems that you should be aware of.
Upper Front Teeth Protrusion
Upper front teeth protrusion, refers to a condition where the upper front teeth extend forward beyond the lower teeth, impacting both the aesthetics and function of your smile.
An overbite, technically referred to as an overjet, is when the upper front teeth stick out too far in front of the lower front teeth, possibly leading to the lower teeth touching the roof of your mouth
A crossbite is when the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, kind of like a jigsaw puzzle piece that doesn’t quite fit, potentially causing issues with tooth and gum health and the proper growth of your jaw.
An underbite is when the lower jaw extends forward more than the upper jaw, causing the lower front teeth to be in front of the upper front teeth, which can impact both the way your smile looks and how effectively you can bite and chew.
Crowding happens when there isn’t enough space in your mouth for all your teeth, often causing them to become jumbled and overlapping, and it can sometimes be fixed with expansion or tooth removal.
Crowding occurs when teeth have insufficient room to erupt from the gum. Crowding can often be corrected by expansion, and many times, tooth removal can be avoided.
