The perfect smile is possible if you are willing to correct your teeth and gums for all risks that may present themselves, including orthodontic risks. If your teeth are not repaired correctly, malocclusions may form, which continue to damage your teeth. Listed below are common malocclusions to know about so in the future you can overcome malocclusions in your smile:

– Crossbites: These malocclusions tend to show up when the upper and lower jawbones fail to line up.
– Open Bites: These malocclusions tend to show up when the upper and lower incisors fail to line up when biting down onto something.
– Deep Bites: These malocclusions tend to show up when the upper and lower incisors fail to line up with the upper incisors sticking out far enough that the lower incisors can cut into the gums behind the teeth.
– Underbites (Bulldog Teeth): These malocclusions tend to show up when the upper and lower incisors fail to line up, with the lower incisors sticking out further.
– Transposition Malocclusions: These malocclusions tend to show up when teeth breach the gum line in places other than where they should be.
– Spacing Malocclusions: These malocclusions tend to show up when there are irregular gaps and spaces between teeth.
– Rotation Malocclusions: These malocclusions tend to show up when teeth rotate out of alignment.
– Misplaced Midlines: These malocclusions tend to show up when the middle of the upper and lower incisors fail to line up.
– Overbites (Upper Protrusions/Buck Teeth): These malocclusions tend to show up when the upper and lower incisors fail to line up, with the upper incisors sticking out further.
