At Dr. Gary Levine, we are committed to helping you achieve the beautiful smile you desire. In doing so, the process begins with identifying the root cause of your need for orthodontics in Winnipeg.
Some of the most common orthodontic conditions and terms include:
Insufficient space for the teeth so that they appear jumbled or crooked
More space than is required, causing “gaps” between the teeth.
Overbite (Deep Bite)
When the upper front teeth excessively overlap the lower front teeth
When the upper front teeth stick out too far; used to be called “buck teeth”
Occurs when the upper jaw is narrower than the lower
When the back teeth are touching but there is a gap between upper and lower front teeth
Class I Malocclusion
Occurs when the jaws fit together properly but there is a problem with either crooked teeth or spacing of the teeth.
Class II Malocclusion
Most commonly occurs when the lower jaw is smaller than the upper jaw
Class III Malocclusion
Commonly occurs when the lower jaw is larger than the upper jaw
In almost all cases, patients present with combinations of the problems described above. For example, a small lower jaw (Class III malocclusion) with a crossbite of the side teeth and an open bite between the front teeth.
If any of the orthodontic conditions listed above apply to you, please call us today to schedule a consultation and get started on your path to a beautiful, straight smile.
