Reasons for Orthodontic Treatment

Orthodontics deals with correcting many dental problems such as:

  • Over bites
  • Under bites
  • Misaligned bites
  • Undue pressure on teeth and gums
  • Misalignment of your jaw after facial surgery

Common reasons children need orthodontic treatment include:


  • Thumb sucking
  • Use of a pacifier beyond age three (3)
  • Prolonged use of a baby bottle for drinking

People with crooked teeth or misaligned bites will often experience the following:

  • Interference when chewing
  • Difficulty in keeping teeth clean
  • Strained teeth and jaw muscles
  • Increased risk of breaking a tooth

At Columbia Dental, trained and experienced dentists will determine if your teeth are crooked or incorrectly aligned because of:


  • Abnormal facial problems
  • Abnormal alignment
  • Difficulty or discomfort when chewing or biting
  • Speech problems such as a lisp
