Common Issues

Orthodontic problems can arise from a variety of sources - trauma, diet, and habits like tongue thrusting among them - but by far, the largest determining factor is genetics. Humans are unique in that our mouth is actually too small for all 32 of our teeth, and this almost inevitably leads to problems with spacing and alignment. Thankfully, the problems on this list are incredibly common, and we can almost invariably treat them with braces or Invisalign®.
