Common Orthodontic Conditions
Did you know? No two smiles are exactly the same – before or after orthodontic treatment!
Many patients have a combination of several conditions, each requiring careful movement to align the teeth and create a proper bite.
The various forms of misaligned teeth are called malocclusions, or “bad bites”. A bad bite occurs when the alignment of the teeth is wrong, resulting in improper positioning when the bite is closed.
While each malocclusion has specific causes and creates certain issues, they all cause problems for your teeth, bite, and overall health of your mouth and body. After all, your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body: overall health begins with a proper bite and healthy teeth.
