What orthodontic problems can Uniform Teeth treat?
Because of the in-person supervision with trained orthodontists, Uniform Teeth can cover a wide range of cases and malocclusions.
Crossbite occurs when the upper teeth are biting on the inside of the lower teeth. This can occur only on the front sides of the mouth. We recommend having it corrected as soon as possible.
Crossbites can cause the following:
- When the teeth have premature wear
- Asymmetrical jaw development
Open Bite Malocclusion
This condition occurs when the upper and lower jaw is forced outward in such a way the upper and lower jaws do not touch when you close your mouth. The timing of the treatment is important to the success of the Uniform Teeth treatment.
If this condition is not treated, it can cause the following
- Premature wear of the molars.
When the patient has an overbite, there is an overlap between the upper and lower teeth. In an extreme case of an overbite, it can cause a non-symmetrical eruption of the front and lower teeth. It can also affect the development of the bone in which the teeth are supported.
An overbite can cause the following:
Lower front part biting onto the gum tissue, which could lead to periodontal problems.
Unusual wear of the lower part of the mouth.
In an underbite, the teeth bite the front of the teeth. This is normally caused by the undergrowth of the upper jaw, lower jaw, or both. This condition is caused by the flared lower incisors, tipped back incisors, missing upper portion, or a combination of each.
Underbite needs to be corrected immediately because:
- Your smile is less attractive.
- It prevents the correct functions of the mouth.
- Can cause jaw-joint dysfunction.
Gaps in teeth, Diastema
Tooth gaps or diastema is a dental condition in which a visible space exists between two or more teeth. IT is common between the two front incisors. Diastema is a common and minor type of misalignment and Uniform Teeth will be able to treat it.
When the tooth gap is considered a minor dental issue that typically affects a few teeth and is not affected by bite misalignment or other complications, Uniform Teeth can be used to treat it.
When cases call for a more involved movement of the teeth or jaw, dentists will supplement Uniform Teeth with elastics or attachment. These attachments are discreet, tooth-colored devices that permit intricate tooth movement.
To make sure your dentist is skilled in Uniform Teeth treatment, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) recommends that you ask your dentist for before and after photos, references, and proof of continuing education before undergoing treatment.
This treatment is eligible for preteens, teens, and adult patients and those who had braces in the past.
