What Are Some of the Causes of Orthodontic Problems?

October 14, 2012

Have you ever wondered why some individuals require more extensive orthodontic treatment than others? In this video, you can explore the underlying causes of orthodontic problems.

Oral malocclusions are classified as inherited or acquired. Inherited dental problems include crowding and spacing issues, extra teeth, and discrepancies with the jawbones. Acquired problems are those created by certain actions or characteristics, including trauma, thumb-sucking, airway obstruction by tonsils and adenoids, and the premature loss of primary or permanent teeth.

Whether you’re suffering from an inherited or acquired condition, orthodontics can help. Give Park Avenue’s Dr. David Seligman of Seligman Orthodontics a call at (646) 719-0076 to get started.
