Perfect smiles frequently necessitate orthodontic treatments that battle the effects of malocclusions. Although malocclusions are fairly commonplace, they can have a negative impact on both the aesthetics and overall health of your teeth and gums. Are you seeking a beautiful, healthy smile? Treating your malocclusion is vital.

Incisor malocclusions are the most common and form when your incisors are out of position. This can happen in a variety of ways. Although most incisor malocclusions are minor, they certainly do need orthodontic attention. Various forms of incisor malocclusions include open bites, deep bites, overbites (commonly called buck teeth), underbites (commonly called bulldog teeth), and misplaced midlines.

As for other malocclusions, crossbites are one of the most well-known. They occur when your upper and lower jawbones fail to line up. Other malocclusions consist of irregular gaps in your teeth, overcrowded teeth, teeth that break up the surface of the gum line, and teeth that are not in their proper alignment.
