Malocclusion of the teeth is a term that describes an appreciable deviation from normal occlusion. This means that teeth are not aligned properly, leading to a bite correction treatment being required.

About This Condition

Practice waiting area - Elleven Dental

Generally teeth should fit comfortably in your mouth and not be crowded or have big gaps. The top jaw should overlap the bottom one slightly.

If teeth are misaligned, they can often pose functional difficulties for the affected person, which can also lead to problems with oral and digestive health if left untreated.

Bite issues can present themselves in the following ways:

  • Overbite
  • Reverse bite
  • Crossbite
  • Open bite

A person affected by a malocclusion can often find they experience an altered facial appearance. They may also struggle with biting their cheeks or tongue, pain or discomfort when eating, speech problems (such as a lisp), or mouth breathing. This condition is often found to be inherited, so prevention is difficult.

However, there are some conditions or habits that can alter the jaw’s structure and shape, such as the following:

  • Cleft lip and palate
  • Prolonged use of dummies
  • Prolonged digit sucking
  • Injury or trauma to the teeth or face
  • Poor dental care

Bite issues can be corrected with the following methods:

  • Wearing braces
  • Removing teeth that are causing the mouth to be overcrowded
  • Applying crowns or dental bonding to reshape the teeth
  • Jaw surgery alloing placement of the jaws in the ideal position to meet in better functional and aesthetic way

Any issues with a bite are best diagnosed by an orthodontist that specialises in braces. Once your bite has been treated, you may feel more comfortable. Your confidence may grow knowing that your smile is more aesthetically pleasing, as well as having issues with speech and eating rectified.
