Malocclusion Prescott

Malocclusion, a common dental issue, occurs when the teeth are misaligned, leading to problems with your bite.

Understanding the Causes

Occlusion refers to the alignment of teeth and the way the upper and lower teeth fit together. Ideally, the upper teeth should slightly overlap the lower teeth, and the molars' points should align with the grooves of the opposite molar. Proper occlusion prevents biting of cheeks and lips and protects the tongue.

Malocclusion is frequently hereditary and can be passed down through families. It may also result from differences in the size of the upper and lower jaws or between jaw and tooth sizes, leading to issues like tooth overcrowding and abnormal bite patterns. Additionally, jaw shape and birth defects like cleft lip and palate can contribute to malocclusion.
