What is the most common orthodontic problem you encounter?
The most common problem I encounter is crowded, crooked teeth. Crowding results when the jawbone is not large enough to accommodate all of the teeth in their natural, straight positions. As a result, teeth grow in twisted, sideways, angled, tipped and sometimes do not grow in at all. Crowding can occur at any age and the solution is the same regardless.
The concept is simple —find a way to make more room for the crowded teeth. Sometimes I can expand the jaws to make the amount of space available increase. Other times, teeth need to be removed to make more room. I decide on the proper treatment by analyzing the patient’s facial proportions, facial profile, lip posture, angle of the front teeth, and interdigitation of the back teeth. There is always a “best solution” to provide a beautiful and healthy smile!
