Braces have come a long way in recent years, and can be custom-designed for your lifestyle. You can get a sporty set of your favorite colors, or be discreet and go with invisible ones such as Invisalign®. No matter your choice of style, all braces provide a vast assortment of benefits for all types of abnormal bites, including:

– Other bad bite issues: extra or missing teeth, misalignments, irregularities in the teeth, gums, jaw, or face
– Overcrowded teeth: occurs when there is not enough space between the teeth, which can cause teeth to bend and protrude
– Spacing issues: too much space, or abnormal gaps between teeth
– Deep bite or closed bite: an excessive form of overbite caused by the lower front teeth biting behind the upper front teeth
– Open bite: occurs when the top and bottom incisors do not connect when biting
– Underbite (sometimes referred to as “bulldog teeth”): occurs when the lower front teeth (the incisors) protrude out farther than the upper front teeth
– Misplaced midline: occurs when the center of your upper front teeth does not line up with the center of your lower front teeth
– Overbite (also called an overjet or referred to as “buck teeth”): occurs when the upper front teeth (the incisors) protrude out further than the lower front teeth
– Crossbite: occurs when the protruding lower jaw is longer than the upper jaw
