Look in the mirror and smile widely.
Do you see one – or more – teeth a little out of place, but enough to make you reluctant to smile a big toothy grin?
It used to take years on end to correct even minor misaligned teeth conditions like this.
Thanks to advances in orthodontics, it’s now possible to straighten them safely in an average of 3-9 months.
Without breaking the bank.
Read on and see if any of these four teeth conditions looks familiar every time you check yourself out in the mirror.
This is when your upper jaw overlaps your lower jaw. It is common for some patients to have a slight overbite of just one or two millimeters, but others have more serious bite issues.
A malocclusion or deep overbite is when the overlap between the upper and lower teeth is more pronounced.
What happens if you leave overbites unchecked?
For one, your speech could be affected by an overbite. You might tend to speak more with your tongue which can affect speech clarity, and even cause you to lisp.

When you don’t have enough room (i.e. ‘real estate’) in your jaw for your teeth to fit properly, your teeth can overlap, bunch up, and twist–sometimes getting pushed to the front or back.
It’s like each tooth is in a messy race to get to the front of your mouth and hog all the attention.
Understandably, the overall effect is less than aesthetically pleasing.
The common signs of crowded teeth include:
Lack of orthodontic care, and even genetics (thanks, Mom and Dad!) can all contribute to overcrowding.
Gaps in Teeth
This happens when you have visible spaces in between your teeth.
Gap teeth are usually the result of a discrepancy between your jaw and teeth size–either your jaw is too large and your teeth too small, or a combination of the two.
While invisible braces are perfect for closing small gaps in your teeth, you still might need additional orthodontic attention and treatment!
That’s because these tooth gaps can sometimes be caused by loss of a back tooth, missing multiple teeth, or a congenitally missing tooth. Without the extra care of a licensed dentist in your smile journey, invisible braces could actually worsen your bite (the way your upper and lower teeth come together) and lead to other severe dental problems.
Minor Crooked Teeth
If you have an overall healthy bite, but just one or two crooked teeth, it is most likely the result of overcrowding or a narrow palate.
That’s because your teeth do not have enough room, so the nearby teeth start pushing them out of the way.
Fortunately, minor crooked teeth can be quite easily fixed with invisible braces – meaning you most likely will not have to wear metal braces.
