A bad bite or malocclusion can cause a multitude of serious dental problems, including:
- Crowding and shifting of teeth
- Spacing between the teeth
- Abnormal tooth wear
- Bone loss around the teeth
- Tooth loss
- Tissue and gum recession
- Difficulty cleaning teeth
- Tooth sensitivity to hot and cold
- Difficulty chewing
- Facial malformity
Sometimes it is necessary to have the orthodontist physically reposition the teeth or jaws in order to obtain an optimal bite.
