A deep bite is determined when the upper, front teeth almost completely overlap the lower front teeth – it is most detrimental to the teeth and health of the jaw joints. A deep bite also has an impact on facial aesthetics and is commonly corrected with orthodontic treatment.
An open bite is a term used to describe when the upper and lower teeth are unable to make physical contact with each other when the jaws are closed. Open bites are often a result of habits such as thumb or extended pacifier sucking or tongue thrusting.
Severe crowding occurs when there is simply not enough room within the jaw for all of the teeth to fit normally. When left untreated, overly crowded teeth can get worse overtime and result in severely crooked teeth. Crowding can lead to plaque accumulation, tooth decay and an increased chance of gum disease.
Generally the main issue with high canines is the position of the other teeth in the mouth. If teeth are poorly spaced or crowded, this can cause an emerging canine to deviate from alignment and erupt in a different position. Genetics and family history can increase the likelihood of this occurring.
A space between two adjacent teeth in the same dental arch is a diastema. They are primarily caused by imbalance in the relationship between the jaw and the size of teeth.
Pediatric dental treatment, such as fillings or crowns, are often necessary after a child has been diagnosed with dental caries. A full clinical exam and radiographic films will help determine the treatment recommendations for your child – these services are rendered in order to resume a patient’s optimal oral hygiene and restore a healthy smile.
