In a distal bite, the maxilla with the incisors is too far forward and / or the lower jaw too far behind. In any case, the teeth can only interlock unevenly when closing the jaws and chewing.
Here decide u.a. Cerebral X-ray analysis and soft tissue profile analysis in which direction the teeth need to be corrected so that the bite is right again and the profile can be positively influenced. The beginning of an orthodontic treatment should be as far as possible in the growth phase of the patient.
If there is a significant lack of space or significant deviations of the jawbone bases, extraction of permanent teeth may be necessary. We discuss with you all individual possibilities and evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of all alternatives critically against each other. You decide with us your individually optimized therapy concept.
In severe cases of lack of space (misalignment of tooth width / jaw size, premature loss of deciduous teeth, breakthrough disorders) it may be necessary to remove permanent teeth.
A crossbite means that the teeth in the posterior region (lateral crossbite) or in the anterior region (frontal crossbite) meet in opposite directions with each other. This represents a significant impairment of the chewing function and should be treated as early as possible orthodontically.
Crossbite may occur in the anterior region (frontal crossbite / see also mesial bite) and / or in the posterior region on one side (lateral crossbite) or bilaterally (bilateral crossbite).
A Mesialbiss means the reserve of the upper jaw and / or the presentation of the lower jaw in comparison to the opposite jaw. This is also usually a frontal cross bite determine. It should be started as early as possible with an orthodontic treatment.
A mesial bite manifests itself in a head or crossbite in the anterior region and can often occur in combination with a lateral crossbite in the posterior region on one side (lateral crossbite) or bilateral (bilateral crossbite). In a mesial bite, a distinction is made between maxillary retrognathia (underdevelopment of the upper jaw) and mandibular prognathism (overdevelopment of the lower jaw), which may also occur together in combination.
In the case of a deep bite, the upper front anterior teeth bite far over the lower anterior teeth and can even cover them completely (cover bite). With a particularly pronounced deep bite, the palate mucosa and / or the gums of the lower front can be injured by a bite (traumatic bite).
Here, the lower jaw is significantly limited in its freedom of movement and in the function whilst chewing. There are also many problems with chewing (crunching) and jaw joint (clicking / pain). The orthodontic treatment with lifting the deep bite is essential to restore the physiological mobility of the mandible and to improve the loading conditions during feeding.
