The dental professional will choose the most suitable treatment for your situation. Regardless of the irregularities that you have in your oral health, it’s their responsibility to diagnose, prevent and treat it.

Number 1. Underbite – this happen when the lower part of your teeth is sticking out or your front one is too far back.

Number 2. Overbite – as a matter of fact, this condition is the reciprocal of underbite condition.

Number 3. Open bite – it’s an open slot between the biting surfaces.

Number 4. Spacing – these are spaces and gaps between your teeth.

Number 5. Crowding – in case that you got more teeth than normal for the dental ridge to accommodate, it should be fixed.

Number 6. Crossbite – say that the upper portion of your teeth doesn’t meet the front of lower teeth, then it certainly should be corrected.
