Are you suffering from curved teeth or teeth that are out of position? A bad bite or misaligned teeth is referred to as malocclusion. Take this opportunity to think about what malocclusions you may be suffering from, including the following:
– When your top and bottom incisors do not meet or line up when you bite down, these are called open bites.
– When the top and bottom incisors are not aligned properly with the bottom ones protruding out further, these are called underbites, also known as bulldog teeth.
– When your teeth erupt above the gum line in the wrong location, these are called transposition malocclusions.
– When the top and bottom incisors are not aligned properly with the top ones protruding out further, these are called overbites, also known as upper protrusions and buck teeth.
– When the direct center of the incisors fails to line up on both the top and bottom of your smile, these are called misplaced midlines.
– When there are irregular spaces and gaps between teeth, these are called spacing malocclusions.
– When your teeth are jolted out of alignment, these are called rotation malocclusions.
