protruding teethProtruding teeth, also known as “Buck Teeth”, are a common problem in both children and adults.

At Zaytoun Orthodontics, we use a variety of procedures, tactics and treatments to reduce the appearance of protruding teeth in Raleigh, Garner and Cary orthodontic patients. Correcting this problem helps decrease the risk of dental fracture and improves function. We can correct protruding teeth in patients of any age.

  • Problems with mouth closure
  • Issues with chewing and speaking
  • Difficulty sleeping and breathing through the nose
  • An increased chance of tooth injury

Correcting this problem can help reduce the risk of dental fracture and improve overall function.

How do you correct protruding teeth?

Protruding teeth can be corrected at any age. With early intervention, in many cases, we can prevent buck teeth from ever occurring.

As early as age seven – a great time for preventive screening – the doctors at Zaytoun Orthodontics  can detect the future possibility for buck teeth in young children.

For children and adults already experiencing problems associated with protruding teeth, our doctors have many approaches to treatment and correction.

In some cases of tooth protrusion, surgery may be necessary to change the placement of the jaw. In the meantime, if your teeth make you self-conscious, keeping them clean and white can help enhance their natural beauty.
