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. Taylorsville dentistry patients with bite problems are at a greater risk for tooth decay and periodontal 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 the lower teeth and jaw are in the wrong position.
Bite problems can cause headaches and TMJ pain. Some Riverton dental patients with severe bite problems develop a distorted facial shape and damaged teeth.
If you suspect your toddler or older child has a bite problem, it is important to see your Salt Lake City dentist as soon as possible. Bite issues and their various related problems usually get worse over time.
