If your smile is slightly crooked or out of its alignment, it may be affecting your oral health. In addition, your self-esteem may be taking a hit if you find yourself embarrassed to smile due to a less than stellar smile. Most misalignment issues are caused by malocclusions, which are bat bites due to teeth being out of position.

Correct problematic malocclusions with an orthodontic treatment. Here are a few facts about malocclusions:

– Crossbites that transpire when each jawbone fails to line up correctly.
– Spacing malocclusions are malocclusions
– Misplaced midlines form when the center of your upper teeth does not connect with the center of your lower teeth.
– Rotation malocclusions come to pass when teeth are shifted out of alignment.
– Transposition malocclusions happen beneath the gum line, resulting in teeth erupting in the wrong places.
– Deep bites act as severe systems of overbites.
– Overbites, also called upper protrusions or bulldog teeth, are the result of the upper row of teeth sticking out past the bottom row.
– Underbites, also called bulldog teeth, ensue when the bottom row of teeth juts out past the upper row.
