Common Orthodontic Issues

Crowding of the teeth

This boy started treatment at age 11 and wore braces for 26 months. He loves his new smile.


Open bite: front teeth don’t touch

This girl sucked her thumb as a young child. She started treatment at age 13. She had braces and a special appliance — called a crib — to retrain the tongue, for 28 months. Now she can bite the lettuce out of a sandwich.


Deep overbite: lower front teeth bite into palate

This adult patient, age 25, required braces and jaw surgery to correct his severe overbite. Treatment lasted two years. His problem could have been corrected without surgery if he had been treated before he was a teenager.


Missing lateral incisors

This woman’s lateral incisors were missing since birth. She had braces for 20 months to move the teeth into their correct positions, then the missing teeth were replaced with bonded “Maryland” bridges.


Underbite: lower front teeth in front of upper teeth

This woman’s underbite was causing her jaw joint discomfort and excessive wear patterns on her teeth. After about 30 months of treatment starting at age 32, she now finds smiling and chewing much easier.


Spacing of teeth

This patient was bothered by the spaces between his teeth. Braces closed the spaces and gave him an ideal bite in 24 months. Special glued-in retainers help keep the spaces closed.


Overjet: protruding front teeth

At age ten, this girl had a big overjet with the top teeth protruding beyond the bottom. She had two phases of treatment. The first helped her jaws to grow more harmoniously and the second aligned her teeth and bite. At age 13, she was proudly displaying her new smile.


Non-braces treatment

Sometimes braces are not needed to get noticeable improvements in tooth alignment. This patient was first seen at age seven for crowding of the lower permanent teeth. A procedure was performed to reduce the width of the adjacent baby teeth and the permanent incisors aligned on their own in nine months.


Phase-One

This boy’s parents were concerned about both aesthetics and the health of the erupting permanent teeth when they brought him to the orthodontist at age eight. The lower front teeth were crowded and touching the palate, and the upper front teeth were extremely displaced from their normal positions. After 12 months of Phase-One treatment with an expander and partial braces, the patient’s appearance and dental function were vastly improved.

This is a dumb survey. I used to be in marketing research if you ever want to do a relevant survey. We have been going to your practice for six years or more. Why do you care now why we came, as it’s not really relevant anymore (in terms of timeliness). Why aren’t you asking about things like promptness or communication now or something like that. And you keep sending the same survey. Are you actually doing something with the data that is being collected. Sorry for being a pain. I just hate irrelevant surveys that capture poor data.
