FASTBRACES® – Over Bite

The proper dental term for "overbite" is actually "overjet". This occurs when the upper teeth protrude over the lower teeth for an improper occlusion (bite when closed). Some causes include genetics, or underdevelopment of the alveolar or skeletal bone supporting the teeth. Overjet can be the cause of gum irritation, wear on the lower teeth and/or jaw and joint problems

FASTBRACES® – Open Bite

An open bite occurs when the front teeth do not make contact with their opposing teeth. This can be caused by habits, improperly erupted teeth or genetically abnormal jaw structure. It can result in speech impairment, poor chewing, or even temporo-mandibular joint disorder (TMJ).

FASTBRACES® – Crowded Teeth

Crowding occurs when there is simply not enough room in the mouth for all of teeth to erupt (come in) properly. If left untreated, crowding can worsen over time and result in severely overlapped teeth. This may increase risk of plaque accumulation, decay and periodontal disease.

Five crowns within 48 hours with Salma Kingston

Crowns are needed when a tooth has a significant amount of structural damage and a normal filling would not be adequate.

Treatment stages:

  • Heavily filled teeth that have broken or that are likely to break in the near future.
  • Teeth with old amalgam fillings often crack around the filling causing pain when chewing.
