Solutions For Common Problems By Your Springboro Orthodontist

v-bracesAt Sprowls Orthodontics, our mission is to provide the utmost quality in orthodontic care in a fun, stress-free environment. Dr. Sprowls and our highly trained team of orthodontic specialists will work with you to develop a treatment plan that suits your needs and fits your schedule. We provide the most state-of-the-art orthodontic care, including Invisalign, orthodontic appliances, lingual braces and traditional braces in Springboro, OH and the surrounding communities. Orthodontic treatment can be used to combat a number of common problems, such as:

  • Underbite: An underbite is a condition in which the lower jaw extends too far outward, causing the lower teeth to sit ahead of the upper.
  • Spacing: Spacing problems are generally caused by missing teeth, but can occur even when all teeth are present. Although spacing is often simply a cosmetic or aesthetic issue, spacing can also affect bite and jaw health and should always be evaluated.
  • Upper Front Teeth Protrusion: This is characterized by the upper front teeth extending too far forward or the lower teeth not extending forward enough. This condition can impact both the appearance and functionality of the teeth and bite.
  • Crowding: Crowding occurs when teeth don't have enough room to erupt from the gum. If not too significant, crowding can be remedied by a simple expansion device.
  • Crossbite: Crossbite occurs when the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, and can cause tooth stratification and adversely affect the growth of the jaw.
  • Overbite: This occurs when the upper front teeth extend too far over the lower teeth. In some cases, this can affect the functionality of the jaw and cause the lower teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.
  • Openbite: This condition occurs when the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap or connect. Openbite can impact chewing habits and subsequently jaw growth, and can also reinforce a number of undesirable habits such as tongue thrusting.
  • Dental Midlines not Matched: This problem is caused when the back bite incorrectly fits together, and can negatively impact jaw and tooth function.
