Orthodontics is a specialized branch of dentistry that deals with crooked, uneven or misaligned teeth. An orthodontist like Dr. Koch at Koch Orthodontics in Lawrenceville & Loganville, GA helps you improve your oral health with the focus on orthodontics where he corrects issues with the placement and position of teeth and jaws.Common orthodontic problems we correct are:
Overbite or “Buck Teeth”
When your upper front teeth stick out past the lower ones, because they are too far forward or lower teeth are too far back.
Underbite or “Bulldog Teeth”
When your lower front teeth stick out over the upper ones, because they are too far forward or upper teeth are too far back.
When you have a space or gap between your front teeth and/or side of your mouth between your back teeth.
When your upper teeth bite inside of your lower teeth, instead of outside. When your upper teeth bite inside of your lower teeth, instead of outside.
When the centers of your upper and lower front teeth don’t line up while biting normally.
When you have gaps or spaces between your teeth, either because teeth don’t “fill up” your mouth or you have missing teeth.
When your teeth overlap or you have too many teeth for your dental ridge and jaw.
When any permanent tooth emerges only partially from your gums or becomes stuck under the gums and does not emerge at all.
