Treatable cases at
The Orthodontic Practice, Liverpool

The most common orthodontic problem is called malocclusion, or ‘bad bite’, and can be a genetic problem. A bad bite can also be caused by childhood thumb or finger-sucking, mouth breathing, dental disease, abnormal swallowing, poor dental hygiene, the early or late loss of baby teeth, accidents or poor nutrition. Trauma and other medical conditions such as birth defects may contribute to orthodontic problems as well.

If you are concerned about you or your children's teeth - start by talking to your regular dentist. However, if you know that you want to get you or your child's teeth straightened, please contact us to arrange an initial consultation.


Early treatment

Orthodontic problems can affect anyone but the good news is that most issues can be treated at any age. It is however best for problems to be corrected as early as possible so the they do not persist and cause more damage to the teeth or gums.

Fixed braces

The traditional metal braces are no longer the only choice for straightening teeth. You can now choose a more modern, more efficient and more discreet brace system to help you achieve the smile you want.

Whatever your reason for getting in touch, and no matter whether it’s all your teeth or just one that’s twisted, we understand that your smile is a very personal thing and that it can affect your self-confidence dramatically. We would be happy to talk through all the options available with you, helping you choose the right option for you and your lifestyle.

Whichever brace you choose your teeth may feel a little bruised at some points, but it should be a relatively pain-free process. Having straighter teeth also benefits your oral health, as teeth are harder to clean when they are overcrowded and overlapping.

Common orthodontic conditions

Open bite

Open bite often occurs when some teeth are unable to make physical contact with the opposing teeth for a proper bite.

Deep bite / overbite

Deep bite or overbite occurs when the upper teeth bite over the lower teeth.

Gapped teeth

Gaps between teeth can occur with abnormal continued growth of the jawbone. Missing teeth can also cause the surrounding teeth to shift due to extra space, creating gaps in your teeth.

Overly crowded

When you don't have enough room in your jaw for your teeth to fit normally, the teeth can bunch up, overlap and twist, sometimes getting pushed to the front or the back.


Underbite can occur when the lower teeth protrude past the front teeth.


Crossbite can occur when the upper and lower jaws are both misaligned.
