Common Orthodontic Problems

What Sorts of Orthodontic Problems Are Common?

Orthodontic problems are common to people across all ages and all walks of life. Because of the way the mouth develops – adult teeth erupt as the jaw is still growing – it’s natural that sometimes teeth will come in crookedly. Sugary diets and bad brushing habits, which can lead to early baby tooth loss, can compound the problem.



At Adirondack Orthodontics, we see patients with a wide range of orthodontic problems and concerns. Here are just a few of the types of problems that we see in our offices every day:

  • Crooked Teeth
  • Crossbite
  • Dental Crossbite
  • Dental Overcrowding
  • Excessive Overjet
  • Gapped Teeth
  • Improperly Aligned Teeth
  • Open Bite
  • Overbite
  • Traumatic Occlusion
  • Underbite
  • And More

The good news is that nearly all of these problems can be corrected, especially when they’re caught early. We try to use the least invasive options first, but even if those options aren’t available, we can still help. If you want a straight, even smile for yourself or your child, we can almost certainly make sure you have one. All you have to do is come and see us!
