This is the most common problem that orthodontic treatment resolves. The teeth are two wide to fit into the arch and are therefore fighting against each other for space. The result is a crowded appearance.
This is a vertical problem with the front teeth where the top teeth cover too much of the lower teeth. Ideally they should only cover 20% of them, but as you can see in this picture they are covering all of them.
This is a horizontal problem with the front teeth where the top teeth are too far forward from the bottom teeth. Ideally this should only be 3mm.
This is the second most common problem that orthodontic treatment resolves. The teeth are too narrow to fit into the arch and therefore leave spacing. The result is a gap usually in the middle of the arch.
This is usually due to crowding, and as teeth come through in a particular order, the last tooth to come through gets the short straw and doesn't find itself with enough room in the arch. This is quite often the canine tooth.
