Orthodontists are concerned with the study and treatment of improper bites, which may be a result of tooth irregularity and/or disproportionate jaw relationships.

Orthodontic treatment can focus on dental displacement only, or deal with the control and modification of facial growth. In severe malocclusions, management often requires a combination of Orthodontics and jaw surgery.

At Maple Ridge Dental Centre we can correct problems with the alignment of the bite, including overbite, underbite, open bite, and crossbite.
