Malocclusions (bite problems) include overbites, underbites and crossbites. Jaw alignment disorders restrict proper chewing, talking, and swallowing. They can also cause teeth to shift around in the mouth. Minneapolis family dentistry patients with bite problems are at a greater risk for tooth decay and gum disease because bite misalignment often makes it difficult to maintain proper oral hygiene.
When the lower jaw is smaller than the upper jaw, it is called an overbite. When the situation is reversed, it is called an underbite. Crossbite occurs when lower teeth are in the wrong position.
If you suspect your toddler or older child has a bite problem, it is important to see your Minneapolis family dentist as soon as possible. Bite issues and their various related problems get worse over time.
