Orthodontic treatment helps to realign or straighten your teeth using braces or other appliances which apply gentle pressure on your teeth and helps to move your teeth into the right position, thereby improving your looks as well as your health.

Who needs orthodontic treatment?

If the position of your teeth and jaw is affecting your bite then you may need orthodontic treatment. Bite is how the top and bottom teeth come together.  If the top and bottom teeth do not come together it is known as a bad bite or malocclusion.

There are factors that cause a bad bite such as crooked teeth, crowded teeth, missing teeth due to an accident or protruding front teeth. Even habits like thumb sucking can cause a bad bite. There are different types of bad bites like;

  • Over jet – when upper front teeth protrudes
  • Deep bite – upper front teeth cover the lower front teeth too much
  • Under bite – upper front teeth fits inside the arch of the lower front teeth
  • Open bite –  opening between the upper and lower front teeth even when the mouth is closed
  • Cross bite – when one or more upper teeth is not lined up with the appropriate lower teeth
  • Gaps between teeth also causes a bad bite

A malocclusion or bad bite can affect the way your teeth look and functions. It will make it difficult for you to chew some types of food, the teeth can wear down easily and it can even cause muscle pain and tension. The probability of developing cavities and gum disease is high when teeth are crooked or crowded as they are difficult to be cleaned.
