Common Problems

Upper Front Teeth Protrusion
The appearance and function of your teeth are impacted by this type of bite. It is characterized by the upper teeth extending too far forward or the lower teeth not extending far enough forward.


Overbite
It is the degree of vertical overlap of the upper and lower front teeth has with each other.  In the extreme, lower front teeth bite in to the roof of the mouth.


Crossbite
The upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth, which may cause tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.


Openbite
Proper chewing is impacted by this type of bite, in which the upper and lower front teeth do not overlap. Openbite may cause a number of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting.


Other Problems


Crowding
Crowding occurs when teeth have insufficient room to erupt from the gum. Crowding can often be corrected by expansion, and many times, tooth removal can be avoided.


Spacing

Spacing problems may be caused by missing teeth, or they may only be a cosmetic or aesthetic issue.

Dental midlines not matched

This type of problem is caused when the back bite does not fit and match appropriately, which may negatively impact jaw and proper dental function

Testimonials

We used Dr. Tringas for my daughter a few years ago when she needed braces and are now back for my son. Dr. Tringas has a great demeanor; he is very calm and easy to talk to. He explains everything in a way that is easy to understand. His staff is always very friendly and approachable. The best part is we never have to wait very long at all to be called for our appointment. I would highly recommend him. Amy V.
Dr.Tringas has been dealing with my sons teeth since he was in the third grade. We know how hard his case was and we have seen the great improvements that have taken place with him. We are very very thankful for everything he and his staff have done for him. Not everyone would have taken the time to talk with him and figure out that his palate needed help... the other sure did not figure it out. Dr. Tringas is the best at what he does and I would tell everyone I know that needs an orthodontist to go to him. Best in the game I say! Jeff V.
