The most common reason the two upper front permanent teeth may fail to erupt is an extra tooth, also known as a mesiodens. Your orthodontist can determine the most appropriate course of care based on its position and effect on the adjacent teeth.

Some researchers believe that humans owe their superior intelligence to weak jaw muscles! A mutation 2.4 million years ago left humans unable to produce one of the main proteins in primate jaw muscles, eliminating the constraints of a bulky chewing apparatus and leaving the human skull free to grow.

A malocclusion, or ‘bad bite’ is often associated with genetics, but it can also be caused by thumb or finger-sucking, mouth breathing, dental disease, abnormal swallowing patterns, the early or late loss of baby teeth, accidents or poor nutrition.

Although the stunning smiles that are the result of orthodontic care may look like magic, they’re actually due to properly directed forces applied to the teeth over a period of time. More simply put, the carefully controlled push and pull of orthodontic appliances cause changes in the bone around the teeth that allow them to move in the intended directions.

Your canine teeth play a key role in your bite and supporting your facial structure. If one of them becomes impacted it’s critical to see an orthodontist to see how they can be brought into proper alignment.

Orthodontists have years of advanced training in dentofacial orthopedics and a comprehensive knowledge of facial growth and development, as well as the expertise to align teeth and improve jaw relationships. Whether a case requires minor tooth movement, interceptive care, comprehensive orthodontic treatment, or complex orthognathic surgery, an orthodontist is trained to provide the highest level of care.
