OverbiteBeforeOverbiteAfter
Overbite
An overbite causes the upper front teeth to extend out over the lower front teeth. This may cause the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.

 

UnderBeforeUnderAfter
Underbite
When the lower jaw extends out, it creates an underbite. The lower front teeth will sit in front of the upper front teeth.

 

OpenbiteBeforeOpenbiteAfter
Open Bite
If the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap, it creates an open bite. This can make it hard to chew properly and could contribute to unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.

 

Crossbite
A crossbite causes the upper teeth to sit inside the lower teeth. This may result in tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.

 

UpperFrontBeforeUpperFrontAfter

Upper Front Teeth Protrusion
In this misaligned bite, either the upper teeth extend too far forward or the lower front teeth do not extend far enough forward. This problem can negatively impact both the appearance and function of your smile.

 

Dental Midlines Not Matched
This orthodontic problem is created when the back of the bite does not fit together correctly, and it may negatively impact the jaw and proper oral function.
