ratings and reviews)
A malocclusion is defined as a misalignment, which is also termed as incorrect relation that occurs in the two dental arches and impacts the teeth in between. This results in the jaws having trouble when closing and tend to form a weird angle that is known as Edward Angle. The most common symptoms here include skeletal disharmony, trouble speaking and closing the mouth and speech issues.
HOW IS MALOCCLUSION DIAGNOSED?
Diagnosis can be done by a dentist who would do an Xray to check this alignment and also examine the mouth to see the formation of the teeth.
HOW IS MALOCCLUSION TREATED?
Mild Malocclusion does not require treatment. Depending on the type and severity of malocclusion, the dentist may recommend:
• Braces for correcting position
• Removal of teeth
• Reshaping, bonding and capping of teeth
• Wires or plates to stabilize jaw bone
• Surgery to reshape jaw
