What is Malocclusion?
Smiles on Souris can adjust your misaligned bite.
Malocclusion is the misalignment of a person’s bite or the irregular contact of the upper teeth with the lower teeth. Though malocclusion does not always cause any pain or trouble chewing, it can lead to increased wear on the teeth which can affect the overall health of the teeth in the future. Malocclusion can include overbites, underbites, openbites and crossbites. It can also be characterized by visual spacing or overcrowding of the teeth affecting one’s smile.
FACT: Malocclusion can cause tooth pain and jaw pain (TMJ) often leading to headaches, tooth sensitivity, poor esthetics and more.
