Orthodontic Problems

Orthodontic problems can affect anyone, regardless of age. Understanding the different types of malocclusions, or dental misalignments, can help individuals recognize potential problems and seek appropriate treatment.

Class I Malocclusion, Class II Malocclusion, and Class III Malocclusion are the three main types of malocclusions, each with its own characteristics and treatment options. Additionally, issues like spaced teeth, overcrowded teeth, open bite, overbite, underbite, crossbite, protruding teeth, and midline discrepancy can impact oral health and aesthetics.

Class I Malocclusion

Class I Malocclusion is a type of dental misalignment characterized by a normal bite, with the upper teeth slightly overlapping the lower teeth. It's the most common type of malocclusion, affecting many individuals worldwide. Although the bite is normal, certain issues like overcrowding, spacing problems, or jaw discrepancies may still require orthodontic treatment for correction and improvement of overall oral health.

Class II Malocclusion

Class I Malocclusion is a type of dental misalignment characterized by a normal bite, with the upper teeth slightly overlapping the lower teeth. It's the most common type of malocclusion, affecting many individuals worldwide. Although the bite is normal, certain issues like overcrowding, spacing problems, or jaw discrepancies may still require orthodontic treatment for correction and improvement of overall oral health.

Class III Malocclusion

Class III Malocclusion, also known as prognathism or underbite, is a dental misalignment where the lower teeth protrude beyond the upper teeth. This condition occurs due to discrepancies in jaw size or positioning, often resulting from an oversized lower jaw, undersized upper jaw, or a combination of both. Patients with Class III Malocclusion may experience difficulties with biting, chewing, and speech, and are more susceptible to dental issues like tooth wear and gum problems. Orthodontic treatment, potentially in combination with jaw surgery, may be necessary to correct the bite and improve overall oral health and aesthetics.

Spaced teeth

Spaced Teeth

When the gaps between teeth are too large, this problem occurs. This can occur if there is a lot of room for your teeth in your jaw. Spacing creates large gaps between teeth and it is common for food to get stuck in these spaces, which can lead to tooth decay.

Overcrowded Teeth

In contrast to spacing, overcrowded teeth occur when there is not enough room in the jaw for your teeth. Overcrowded teeth are difficult to clean and eventually, this difficulty may result in tooth decay and bad breath. This problem may also result in some teeth becoming more worn down than the rest of the mouth.
