Bite and Alignment Correction

Together we can straighten your smile!

Common Smile Alignment Problems

Orthodontic issues are indeed common, affecting a broad spectrum of the population. Teeth seldom grow perfectly aligned, leading to various dental misalignments or malocclusions—often referred to as a "bad bite." A malocclusion can significantly impact daily life, causing difficulties in chewing, maintaining oral hygiene, speaking clearly, and may affect one's self-esteem due to aesthetic concerns. Several factors contribute to the development of a bad bite, including genetic predispositions, childhood habits such as thumb sucking, the presence of dental diseases, inadequate dental care, traumatic injuries, congenital anomalies, or specific medical conditions.

Understanding the precise nature of the orthodontic issues faced by you or your child is vital for effective treatment. Dr. Marty Greenberg, a seasoned orthodontist at Bold Bite Orthodontics, is committed to addressing these issues head-on. His expertise allows for the provision of treatments that enhance not only the functionality of your bite but also the overall appearance of your smile. The transformation from a bad bite to a "Bold Bite"—one that you can proudly showcase—is our paramount objective.

Common Orthodontic Problems Include:

  • Overbite: Where the upper teeth excessively overlap the lower teeth.

  • Underbite: Where the lower teeth protrude past the upper teeth, often due to a misaligned jaw.

  • Crossbite: Where some upper teeth close inside the lower teeth rather than outside, affecting one or multiple teeth.

  • Open Bite: Where there is a noticeable gap between the biting surfaces of the front or side teeth when the mouth is closed.

  • Crowding: Insufficient space in the jaw leads to overlapping or crooked teeth.

  • Spacing Issues: Gaps between teeth, which may be an aesthetic concern or affect how food is chewed.

  • Misplaced Midline: Misalignment of the center of the upper front teeth with the center of the lower front teeth, which can indicate an improper bite.
