Causes of narrow arches
Usually, malocclusions are inherited conditions, which are passed down through generations.
The narrowness of your smile will be affected overall by the alignment of your teeth.
Types of malocclusions and bite irregularities:
- Crowded teeth
- Overbites and overjets
- Underbites and under jets
- Open bites
- Incorrect tooth alignment
- Change of face shape and appearance
- Inner cheeks and tongue being bitten frequently
- Discomfort when eating, biting or chewing
- Lisps / speech impediments/problems
- Mouth breathing
- Patients with narrow smiles can leave their cheeks unsupported or be affected by thinning of the lips
How to correct and broaden narrow smiles
A common and popular treatment to correct bite issues, braces are used to correct the position of the teeth by gradually moving them into their correct and ideal position.
If your bite is severe, meet with one of our orthodontists. One of our dentists like Dr Marshall will be able to quickly identify your condition and prescribe the best form of treatment.
As the most innovative and fastest solution, Invisalign has become the popular choice.
Using removable aligners, patients are now able to straighten their teeth in half the time as fixed braces and can do so discreetly.
Sometimes, tooth extraction may be prescribed in cases where extreme and severe overcrowding is present.
The removal of teeth will then provide some extra room for the teeth to spread out and fix problems like crooked teeth.
Super-thin veneers are being used more and more to correct bite issues as they offer patients a quick and fast way to fix smile imperfections without having to wait for the results.
Porcelain veneers are applied to the front surface of the tooth, which is minimally invasive and involves the outer layer of enamel being shaved off a little bit to allow your new veneers to bond. More.
Veneers can even be a solution to fix some overbite cases, where the margins are not beyond the scope.
However, larger overbites may need a more aggressive solution.
