In a Class II relationship, the lower jaw is positioned far back from the upper jaw. This jaw discrepancy may result in a small chin, and may also cause bite and jaw joint problems.
As a component of Orthodontic treatment, two of the bicuspid teeth may be removed, in order to create space for the remaining teeth.
These individuals may also have small jaws which cannot accommodate all the teeth, resulting in crowding of the teeth. Crowded teeth are difficult to clean, which may contribute to gum and bone problems.
Once Orthodontic treatment has been completed, the jaws are repositioned and the teeth have been straightened. Orthodontic treatment can transform misaligned teeth into a natural, beautiful smile.
