Common Orthodontic Treatments

Drs. Rollins, Petersen, and Adams can fix many malocclusion problems when we provide common orthodontic treatments. Our dentists align overbites, underbites, and crooked teeth with our braces and other straightening systems. Contact Rollins & Petersen if you would like to receive some common orthodontic treatments in any of our  Mesa, Gilbert, Globe or Queen Creek, Arizona locations.

We are committed to treating all of your orthodontic problems so you can reach a smile that is straighter, healthier, more functional, and more attractive. Some of the most common orthodontic

problems we see at our office include the following:

Overbite

In an overbite, the upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth. This sometimes causes the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.

Underbite

An underbite occurs when the lower jaw extends out, resulting in the lower front teeth sitting in front of the upper front teeth.

Open Bite 

An open bite is characterized by upper and lower front teeth that do not overlap. This often causes problems with proper chewing, and it may also contribute to other unwanted habits like tongue thrusting.

Crossbite

In a crossbite, the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth. This may result in tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.

Upper Front Teeth Protrusion

In this type of bite, the upper teeth extend too far forward or the lower front teeth do not extend far enough forward. This can impact both the appearance and function of the teeth.

Dental Midlines Not Matched

This orthodontic problem is caused when the back bite does not fit and match correctly, and it may negatively impact the jaw and proper dental function.
