The successful correction of deviations of bite with orthodontic treatment

The situation when the connection of upper and lower teeth is not optimal is considered a deviation of bite. As an orthodontic issue it has multiple existing forms.

  • Open bite: with closed jaw there is a small gap between the upper and lower arch of teeth while both upper and lower teeth are forced outwards
  • Cross bite: upper arch of teeth is narrower than the lower one. The upper teeth bite inside the lower teeth. This results in a reverse bite relation that limits the growth of the upper jaw. This problem plays an important role in the evolution of face and can even cause the deformation of the face
  • Overjet or protruding teeth: upper front teeth are sticking out and there might be gaps in between the teeth
  • Underbite or lower jaw protrusion: the lower teeth are positioned ahead of the upper teeth. The profile is adversely affected

Bite disorders are various therefore only personalized indications can offer orthodontic treatment plans.

Orthodontic procedure is an essential element of such treatment but the involvement of other specialists into the procedures may be necessary.

The most frequently used techniques for bite disorders are the use of soft-power devices. Success can only be achieved with a complex approach of the problem. The first step in the whole procedure must be the definition of the core problems on a personal consultation.
