Orthodontic treatment often improves function, enabling you to chew food properly.

The person who treats and corrects misaligned teeth and gums is known as an orthodontist.

What Problems Do Orthodontic Treatments Address?

Orthodontic problems can arise from various causes, but they are treatable through orthodontic options. The following are some of the orthodontic issues that individuals might encounter.

Teeth Gap

This is where someone has spaces between teeth, most prominently seen between the upper front two teeth. Gaps in the teeth can result from habits like thumb-sucking, as well as underlying issues where tooth size is insufficient compared to the jawbone.

Crowded Teeth

The condition arises when there is limited space within the mouth or a jaw that is too small. Tooth crowding creates the opposite effects of teeth gaps.

When the size of the teeth exceeds the capacity of the jaw, or when primary teeth are lost prematurely, this forces the neighboring teeth to occupy the vacant spaces.

Bite Problems

Bite problems are dental issues characterized by the misalignment or improper positioning of teeth when the upper and lower jaws meet.

These conditions can impact the way your upper and lower teeth align when you close your mouth. Bite problems can manifest in various forms, including overbite, underbite, open bite, and crossbite.

Common Orthodontics Treatment Options

Orthodontic treatment offers a range of options to address various dental issues. Two common treatments are traditional metal braces and Invisalign clear aligners.


Each set of braces is custom-tailored to suit your specific needs. Our skilled orthodontists will work with you to determine the most effective approach to correct your bite or align your crooked teeth.


Invisalign provides a superior fit compared to traditional braces. Invisalign clear aligners are also almost invisible. They also significantly reduce the time required for teeth to achieve proper alignment.
