Conditions We Treat

  • underbite
  • Overjet

    Overjet is when the upper front teeth or jaw is excessively ahead of the lower teeth. This condition may be the result of poorly aligned teeth or poor jaw alignment. This can lead to an inadequate ability to chew foods and lead to excessive tooth wear on the back teeth.

  • underbite
  • Crossbite

    Crossbite can occur when the upper and lower teeth or jaws are misaligned. It causes one or more upper teeth to bite on the inside of the lower teeth. This can cause wear of the teeth and/or asymmetrical growth.

  • underbite
  • Underbite

    Underbite can occur when the lower teeth protrude past the upper front teeth. This can prevent the normal function of the front teeth and cause excessive wear on the remaining teeth. It can also cause painful jaws and joint problems.

  • underbite
  • Crowding

    Teeth crowding occurs when there is simply a lack of room within your jaw. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can get worse. Dental crowding can make cleaning difficult and lead to plaque accumulation and tooth decay.
