Common Orthodontic Issues We Treat


orthodontic treatment

Orthodontic problems like crooked or misaligned teeth, over and under bite, gaps and a general self-consciousness about your smile are extremely common and affect people of all ages. Some of these issues can be purely cosmetic, whereas others can cause skeletal issues and stop your jaw from operating as it should. 

Modern orthodontic technology today can fix a whole range of problems and along with expert care from a reliable orthodontic practice, it's possible to achieve the smile of your dreams.

At Northenden Orthodontics, we specialise in providing high quality, private orthodontic care and address a range of orthodontic problems, using state-of-the-art techniques to create beautiful and healthy smiles. We are a specialist orthodontist in Manchester and our team of specialist orthodontic consultants have undergone extensive training and utilise the latest technological advances to ensure we deliver the most effective care possible.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common orthodontic issues we treat.


Crowding is an extremely common orthodontic issue consisting of inadequate space for all your teeth for your mouth to accommodate. This can lead to teeth overlapping or becoming rotated, making dental hygiene challenging. You can speak with our consultant orthodontists about our range of effective treatments to tackle this problem, including braces and aligners, that can gently guide your teeth into proper alignment.


Spacing issues occur when there is too much room between your teeth. These gaps can attract plaque and allow it to build up, increasing the risk of tooth decay and gum disease. Our range of metal, ceramic or lingual braces can help to close these gaps, along with Invisalign and other forms of braces and aligners which can help to improve your oral health and your smile.

Overbites/Deep Bites

An overbite is characterised by upper front teeth that overlap the lower teeth. This affects the aesthetics of your smile, the shape of your face and difficulties in chewing. At our specialist orthodontist in Manchester, we can help to reduce an overbite by issuing the latest in dental imaging to determine which type of brace will suit your specific need.


Underbites occur when the lower teeth extend beyond the upper ones. This can lead to uneven tooth wear, chewing problems, and even temporomandibular joint (TMJ) issues. Our experienced team at Northenden House Orthodontics are trained in a range of effective treatments to correct underbites, enhancing your smile and oral function. We can address underbites with a range of braces, provide tagretting treatment with brace elastics and in more severe cases, perform jaw surgery. 


At times, the upper and lower teeth may overlap in your smile, either in the front or along the sides. This misalignment can impede chewing and cleaning.  By seeking advice from one of our specialist orthodontic consultants, interventions and techniques such as braces or even orthognathic surgery (jaw surgery) in severe cases can be carried out to help improve jaw function and bone structure.

We also offer Invisalign and Orthognathic surgery at our practice, so we really are equipped to cover any orthodontic case from the very mild to very severe.
