Orthodontic problems we treat

Creating beautiful smiles for our patients is why the team at Class 1 Orthodontics comes to work each day. But no two days are the same in our profession because no two smiles are the same.

Our patients present a range of orthodontic problems which we need to fix in order to achieve their perfect smile. Here are some of the most common ones we treat.

 

Crowding

Crowding

Crowding is a really common orthodontic problem. It occurs when there is not enough space in your mouth for all of your teeth. This causes teeth to fight for space and overlap, leaving you with a crooked smile.

Spacing

Spacing

Some patients have the opposite problem to crowding where there are big unsightly gaps between teeth. Not only does this make people feel self-conscious but it can also be unhygienic as food can get stuck in the gaps!

Open bite

Open bite

An openbite is a common problem affecting your jaws. It occurs when your front teeth don’t touch when you bite down on your back teeth. We can fix this with appliances that encourage your jaws to move into alignment.

Underbite

Underbite

If your lower teeth sit in front of your upper teeth when you bite down on your back molars, this is known as an underbite. We’ll need to encourage your upper jaw to move forwards slightly to ensure it's in alignment but we can do this with a range of orthodontic appliances.

Overbite

Protrusion

If your front teeth protrude out, this is known as an overjet or overbite. It is a common problem in children who have sucked their thumbs. Protruding teeth can be dangerous as they’re more susceptible to injury. The good news is, it’s a common problem and one that is easily fixed.

How does LightForce™ treatment work?

When you visit our practice for your free consultation, we will use our 3D scanner to make a digital model of your smile. We will use that model to create custom brackets for each of your teeth, and place the precise location of each bracket for the most efficient treatment.

Once your custom treatment plan is finalised, we will use our state-of-the-art 3D printer to print your bespoke brackets! The customisation involved in LightForce™ treatment planning makes it much more accurate and swift than traditional braces.
