Dental misalignments or malocclusions occur when teeth are improperly positioned in a jaw. This causes the upper and lower jaws to not fit correctly and results in an irregular bite. There are different kinds of misalignments namely, crossbite, underbite, overbite, overcrowding, teeth gaps and more.
Types of dental misalignments you should know about:
- When the upper and lower teeth both have misaligned teeth, it is called a crossbite.
- An overbite is when the upper jaw extends way ahead of the lower jaw and an underbite is when the lower jaw sticks out far ahead of the upper jaw.
- Teeth gaps are spaces between teeth that can be caused due to missing teeth or jaw size.
- And lastly, overcrowding can occur when the teeth size and the size of the jaw do not match.
Typically dental misalignments are caused due to genetics. But many times, they occur due to some childhood habits like thumb sucking, overuse of the pacifier beyond age 3,and a prolonged use of a baby bottle can also cause dental misalignments. Another reason why misalignments occur are injuries.
Now, each of these misalignments can cause several teeth issues like
- difficulty in chewing and speaking
- gum disease
- Possibility of tooth decay
- bad breath
- jaw pain
- self-image issues.
