What is a Malocclusion?

Malocclusion is the orthodontic term for a bad bite. This includes tooth or jaw misalignment. Malocclusion’s affect the way you smile, chew, clean your teeth or feel about your smile.

Why Should a Malocclusion be Treated?

According to studies by the American Association of Orthodontists, untreated malocclusion can result in a variety of problems. Crowded teeth are more difficult to properly brush and floss, which may contribute to tooth decay and/or gum disease.

Protruding teeth are more susceptible to accidental chipping. Cross bites can result in unfavorable growth and uneven tooth wear. Open bites can result in tongue-thrusting habits and speech impediments. Ultimately, orthodontics does more than make a pretty smile—it creates a healthier you.
