Crowding is a very common orthodontic problem found when there is not enough room present for all of your teeth. There are many treatment options available to help resolve crowding and Dr. Chisari will review them with you at your consultation.
Just the opposite of crowding, spacing is when there is more room then needed to accommodate all of your teeth. In some instances, this can be related to having small teeth in one or both arches. If this is the case, we will work closely with your dentist to assure optimal results.
Deep Bite (Overbite)
A deep bite is also referred to as an Overbite. This is when your upper front teeth overlap most or all of your lower teeth. This can be caused by many different factors and may potentially be damaging to your or your child’s oral health. An evaluation by Dr. Chisari will help determine the best way to resolve this problem.
Your teeth form arches and are commonly referred to as the upper arch and the lower arch. An ideal arch form is usually U-shaped. However, due to a number of factors during growth and development, arches can become narrow or V-shaped. This can contribute to crowding and other dental problems if not resolved.
Protruded Teeth (Overjet)
