Dr. Miller aligns teeth using traditional braces and Invisalign®. Traditional braces work with brackets and wires. We use advanced brackets that allow for shorter and more discreet treatment, and greater comfort. Invisalign is among the most discreet solutions available. Its clear plastic aligners perform the same function as the brackets and wires but are transparent. These orthodontic solutions can also fix jaw misalignment in some cases with the simultaneous use of elastic bands that gently pull your jaw into place.
Malocclusion is divided into several classes that indicate the type and severity of the condition.
Class 1 Malocclusion
This indicates that your upper teeth slightly overlap your lower teeth. Your bite may still be normal.
Class 2 Malocclusion
With this class, you have a severe overbite, i.e., your upper teeth and jaw protrude past your lower teeth. This condition is sometimes called retrognathism.
Class 3 Malocclusion
With this class, you have a severe underbite, i.e., your lower teeth and jaw protrude past your upper teeth. This condition is also known as prognathism.
