Types of orthodontic problems

What are the most common orthodontic problems?

Orthodontic anomaly Class II & III

Problem at the relationship among the upper and the lower jaw in a frontal-rear level.

Crossbite

A Crossbite forms when the upper teeth fit on the inside of the lower teeth. 

Overbite

Overbite when the upper teeth or jaw is protruding over the lower teeth. This is very common and can cause some issues and even make chewing difficult in the worse cases. This is something that an orthodontist can easily treat and have corrected.

Teeth Crowding

Crowding of teeth occurs when there is not enough room in the mouth for all of the teeth. The jaw is too small for it to hold all of the teeth in its place.

Missing lateral incisors

This occurs when the lateral incisor teeth are missing in a patient’s mouth or if the teeth are really small.

Where we are

  • Kleopatra - Xenia Kyparissidou, Vrilissia
    "I decided at an older age ( 41 years old) to start orthodontic treatment , when realized that I was avoiding looking at my teeth on the mirror. My case was quite difficult, cause my teeth were extremely crowded and affected by periodontitis, and I was extremely scared of visiting the orthodontist. I will never forget Dr. Tzamalas' first words on the phone " The most important thing is to pass through the surgery's door".   And indeed, I passed through that door and everything happened quickly and pleasantly. " In a year's time you will get straight teeth without any extractions". And exactly after a year my smile was completely transformed. Most importantly throughout the treatment Dr. Tzamalas was available at all times for any questions I had or any urgent adjustments needed to be done,  and all that in a brand modern and super clean practice. Kosta I can not thank you enough!!!"

    "I feel great with my new smile. I had gaps among my teeth and my jaws did not close properly. My therapy plan included mobile mechanisms and then invisible braces. My whole treatment was much shorter than I expected. Everyone at Athens Orthodontics practice was really friendly while Dr. Tzamalas was always there to answer any question I had. I have already recommended my orthodontist to my friends and relatives. Thank you all at Athens Orthodontics for my perfect smile!"

    "Before I visit the Orthodontist, I was really hesitant at wearing braces especially due to my age and mainly for aesthetic reasons. The time, though, I visited Dr Tzamalas and talked about it, I was really happy to find out that he is an excellent professional and an exceptional person. I finally got the right decision. The whole process was painless and the time passed by really quickly. At the end, I have a great and healthy denture. Thank you Dr. Tzamalas for giving me this great smile! "
