The reason that anybody needs braces is because they have a malocclusion, in other words a bad bite. There are three very broad categories of malocclusions and they are class one, where the anterior-posterior dimension of your teeth it’s exactly spot-on but there’s something else going on. It can either be crowding where you have overlapping of your top or bottom teeth or spacing, or we can even have a deep bite which is where your top teeth overlap your bottom teeth too much. Class two is where your top teeth are too much in front of your bottom teeth. So, in that situation you can have a deep bite also where you can barely see your bottom teeth when you smile, you can have crowding or spacing. And the third type of malocclusion is a class three. And that is where your bottom teeth are in front of your top teeth and that can be an open bite situation where when you smile your front teeth don’t fit together all the way or a deep bite situation and we can also have crowding our spacing in a class 3. The only way to truly evaluate if you’re a good candidate for orthodontic treatment is to come in for an evaluation. I’m Dr. Cassie and I would love to see you for an evaluation.
