Tooth Crowding Of The Upper Jaw

Tooth crowding and narrowness of the upper jaw is amongst the most common types of malocclusion and results in a misalignment of the upper and lower teeth. This leads to the lower jaw being trapped back and not allowing it to grow to its full and proper position, that causes a small chin, prominent nose type of facial profile. This could cause TMD or difficulties with the jaw and surrounding facial muscles later on in life.

The way the teeth fit together dictates the position of the lower and upper jaws. When the upper jaw is narrow, the lower jaw must function in an unnatural posterior position to enable the jaws to come together. In these instances expanding the upper jaw allows the lower jaw to move forward to its normal location providing a more holistic treatment than the alternatives such as surgery. Early Orthodontic Screening will help diagnose and treat this condition in it’s early stages.
