What Conditions Does PacificWest Dental Group Treat?
Every patient is unique and has their own individual needs. There are various types of malocclusion that our clinic staff treat on a regular basis. Here are some of the issues that appointments with our team can remedy.
Crowded teeth or overcrowding occurs when the jaw bone is too small for teeth to grow straight into the mouth. It causes teeth to rotate and overlap against each other to fit in. The result is crookedness and misalignment.
Irregular Teeth Shape or Size
The teeth need to be a certain shape and size to fit together like a jigsaw puzzle. If a tooth doesn’t fit properly, it can cause issues.
An open bite happens when the front upper and lower teeth slant in an outward direction. It stops them from touching one another when the patient bites down.
Underbite occurs when the teeth along the lower jaw protrude out farther than the upper front teeth. It happens because of incorrect jaw alignment.
When the upper jaw and teeth extend too far over the teeth on the lower jaw, resulting in the appearance of a protrusive upper lip and teeth, or buck teeth, overbite is the culprit.
A crossbite is present when a tooth or several teeth are situated too close to the cheek or tongue. It prevents the teeth from biting against each other normally, making it harder to chew.
When there’s too much overlapping between the top and bottom front teeth, a deep bite occurs.
