Dental Malocclusion is a condition in which your teeth are misaligned. It happens when your upper jaw and teeth overlap the lower jaw and teeth. The condition is also known as crowded teeth, misaligned teeth, crossbite, overbite, underbite, and open bite.
In this condition, the teeth are not able to perform their normal function. If left untreated, it can lead to complex oral health conditions, including digestive problems.

The dentist will be able to assess the problem by noticing the visible misalignment. A small routine test will be conducted to examine the exact condition. The dentist will observe the motion of the back teeth, whether they are aligned properly or not. You will be later referred to an orthodontist for further diagnosis. Diagnostics test include X-ray tests of teeth, head, skull, and face.
Sometimes, teeth misalignment is not a major problem and does not really require treatment. However, malocclusion requires clinical attention to maintain oral hygiene. It is required to prevent tooth decay and other gum diseases. Through treatment, the stress on your teeth, jaw line, and surrounding muscles is reduced. Also, there is no risk of joint disorders later.
Any kind of overlapping or overcrowding of teeth and jaw is likely to be treated, by removing the misaligned tooth. It can be more than one tooth. Misaligned teeth can also be shaped, crapped, or repaired. This medical procedure can be surgical to put the jaw in shape. The jaw bone is also stabilised using medical instruments like braces, plates, or screws. Personal oral hygiene is a very important part of the treatment. The dentist will recommend the patient to floss his/her teeth after dental implants have been placed in their mouth
Misaligned jaws can be easily noticed when permanent tooth begins to erupt in a child. This generally happens when the child is between 8 – 14 years of age. If you spot such symptoms, visit your doctor immediately for a check up.
