Normal Bite - Crooked Teeth
When you have crooked teeth, your bite is relatively normal and doesn’t require severe correcting. However, the teeth exhibit spacing or crowding creating a crooked appearance.
An overbite, or deep bite, is when the front teeth cover the lower teeth too much. An excessive overbite leads to wearing down of the teeth and may even cause the bottom teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.
In an underbite, the lower jaw is longer than the upper jaw, which causes the lower teeth to protrude in front of the upper teeth. It is best to diagnose this problem early.
The common result of thumb sucking or tongue thrusting, an open bite, is when you can actually stick your tongue between your teeth while biting down. An open bite is a cosmetic problem, but it can also cause chewing problems.
Orthodontic treatment isn’t just for kids and teens. Getting braces as an adult can make you look years younger! Dr. Herman can give you his signature “Brace Lift.”

Many patients come in for a restart or tune-up after experiencing a shift in their teeth. Restarts can be cheaper and take less time than full treatment.
