Crowding of the teeth

Open bite - Front teeth don't touch

Patient sucked her thumb as a young child.

Deep overbite - Lower front teeth bite into palate

Underbite - Lower front teeth in front of upper teeth

Patient's underbite was causing jaw joint discomfort and excessive wear patterns on the teeth.

Spacing of teeth

Patient was bothered by the spaces between the teeth. Braces closed the spaces and gave him an ideal bite.

Overjet - Protruding front teeth

Patient had a big overjet with the top teeth protruding beyond the bottom.

Phase-One Orthodontic Treatment
