Are you suffering from a malocclusion? Although malocclusions, also known as bad bites or teeth misalignments, are common, they do require advanced orthodontics care to slowly straighten them for a beautiful smile you can proudly display.

Orthodontics can correct your malocclusions. For more information about malocclusions, consider the following:

– Overbites, also called upper protrusions or bulldog teeth, are malocclusions that ensue when the upper row of teeth juts out past the bottom row.
– Underbites, also called bulldog teeth, are malocclusions that transpire when the bottom row of teeth juts out past the upper row.
– Misplaced midlines are malocclusions that happen when the center of your upper teeth does not connect with the center of your lower teeth.
– Crossbites are malocclusions that form when each jawbone fails to line up correctly.
– Transposition malocclusions are malocclusions that take place beneath the gum line, resulting in teeth erupting in the wrong places.
– Rotation malocclusions are malocclusions that are the result of teeth that are shifted out of alignment.
– Deep bites are malocclusions that act as severe varieties of overbites.
– Spacing malocclusions are malocclusions that come to pass when there are abnormal gaps and voids between teeth.
