Understanding Malocclusion

Your “bite” refers to how your upper and lower teeth come together when your mouth is at rest. When this alignment is incorrect, it’s known as malocclusion. Left untreated, malocclusion can lead to significant damage to your mouth’s function.

Types of Malocclusion

Malocclusion comes in various forms, including:

  1. Open Bite: Front teeth meet, but back teeth don’t, often caused by habits like thumb sucking.
  2. Underbite: Lower jaw protrudes beyond the upper jaw, leading to tooth wear and jaw stress.
  3. Crossbite: Upper teeth sit inside lower teeth, causing enamel wear and uneven jaw growth.
  4. Deep Bite: Upper teeth cover lower teeth, resulting in enamel wear and dental damage.
  5. Crowding: Jaw lacks space for teeth to grow, increasing the risk of gum disease.
  6. Spacing: Excessive gaps between teeth can also lead to gum disease.
  7. Protrusion: Front teeth extend farther out than others.

Treating Bite Problems

Treatment for malocclusion varies depending on type and severity:

  1. Braces: Metal or clear plastic braces gradually move teeth into proper alignment.
  2. Tooth Removal: If crowding is an issue, removal of a tooth may be recommended.
  3. Reshaping Teeth: Veneers and bonding can alter tooth shape for better alignment.
  4. Jaw Surgery: In severe cases, surgery may be necessary.
