Do you suffer from any known malocclusions? A malocclusion is an alignment issue with your teeth. They are also known as bad bites and can lead to oral health failure if they are not corrected with the proper orthodontic treatment. Common malocclusions are as follows:

– Misplaced Midlines: Malocclusions that transpire when the middle of the upper and lower incisors fail to line up.
– Open Bites: Malocclusions that transpire when the upper and lower incisors fail to line up when biting down onto something.
– Rotation Malocclusions: Malocclusions that transpire when teeth rotate out of alignment.
– Spacing Malocclusions: Malocclusions that transpire when there are irregular gaps and spaces between teeth.
– Crossbites: Malocclusions that transpire when the upper and lower jawbones fail to line up.
– Transposition Malocclusions: Malocclusions that transpire when teeth breach the gum line in places other than where they should be.
– Deep Bites: Malocclusions that transpire when the upper and lower incisors fail to line up with the upper incisors sticking out far enough that the lower incisors can cut into the gums behind the teeth.
– Underbites (Bulldog Teeth): Malocclusions that transpire when the upper and lower incisors fail to line up, with the lower incisors sticking out further.
– Overbites (Upper Protrusions/Buck Teeth): Malocclusions that transpire when the upper and lower incisors fail to line up, with the upper incisors sticking out further.
