The appearance and function of your teeth are impacted by protrusions. This type of bite is characterized by the upper teeth extending too far forward or the lower teeth not extending far enough forward.

In some cases, protrusions can be caused by negative habits, such as thumb sucking, tongue thrusting and more.

Protrusions can have adverse effects on a smile, but fortunately orthodontic intervention can often help. Braces, expanders and other Orthodontics can work to correct protrusions.

If you or your child suffers from dental protrusions, you can schedule an appointment with Alliance Orthodontics today to discover how we can help correct your bite.
