Do you have a child that is dealing with dental alignment issues? Have you noticed a problem with your smile that might benefit from orthodontic care in Universal City or San Antonio, Texas? Call UC Smiles Orthodontics to plan your visit with our orthodontist. Dr. Adebimpe Bebe Ibitayo can see you for an appointment to discuss common orthodontic problems and help find the best solution for you.

We are committed to treating all your orthodontic problems so you can achieve a smile that is straighter, healthier, more functional and more attractive. Some of the most common orthodontic problems we see at our office include the following:


In an overbite, the upper front teeth extend out over the lower front teeth. This sometimes causes the lower front teeth to bite into the roof of the mouth.


An underbite occurs when the lower jaw extends out, resulting in the lower front teeth sitting in front of the upper front teeth.

Open Bite

An open bite is characterized by upper and lower front teeth that do not overlap. This often causes problems with proper chewing and may also contribute to other unwanted habits like tongue thrusting.


In a crossbite, the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth. This may result in tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth.

Upper Front Teeth Protrusion

In this type of bite, the upper teeth extend too far forward, or the lower front teeth do not extend far enough forward. This can impact both the appearance and function of the teeth.

Unmatched Dental Midlines

This orthodontic problem is caused when the back bite does not fit and match correctly. It may negatively impact the jaw and proper dental function.
