Common Problems

Underbite

An underbite is characterized by the lower jaw extending out, causing the lower front teeth to sit in front of the upper front teeth.

Spacing

Spacing problems may be caused by missing teeth, or they may only be a cosmetic or aesthetic issue.

Upper Front Teeth Protrusion

The appearance and function of your teeth are impacted by this type of bite. It is characterized by the upper teeth extending too far forward or the lower teeth not extending far enough forward.

Crowding

Crowding occurs when teeth have insufficient room to erupt from the gum. Crowding can often be corrected by expansion, and many times, tooth removal can be avoided.

Crossbite

The upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, which may cause tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.

Overbite

The upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth, sometimes causing the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.

Openbite

Proper chewing is impacted by this type of bite, in which the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. Openbite may cause a number of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.

Dental Midlines not Matched

This type of problem is caused when the back bite does not fit and match appropriately, which may negatively impact jaw and proper dental function.

Dr. Robinson was very attentive to my concerns throughout my time at his practice. He made sure that my braces worked efficiently and that they were removed on schedule. He also ensured that my smile would stay beautiful for many years to come by adding permanent retainers.

Thank you for making my orthodontic appointments so much fun! I will truly miss you guys. Thank you Dr. Robinson for my new smile!

One of the best experiences that I have had. Dr. Robinson is the best, hands down! He and his staff treat you more like family than anything else. I always enjoyed my visits. My new smile is AMAZING and my self-esteem has increased tremendously because of it. Thanks Dr. Robinson for everything!!!!
