Crossbite: Effects & Treatments

October 27, 2017

Woman with severe crossbiteMany orthodontic patients have heard of over and underbite. These bite position concerns are more common than crossbite. They occur when the top row of teeth protrudes too far over the bottom teeth (overbite) or the bottom teeth protrude too far under top teeth (underbite). These bite alignment concerns make it difficult to chew and speak clearly. They can also change the shape of the face without treatment. Similarly, crossbite occurs when the teeth are positioned incorrectly on one or both sides of the mouth. While this is the rarer of the bite alignment concerns treated by dentists and orthodontists, it can cause the most severe issues for patients when it comes to speaking and chewing. Correcting this alignment issue is important to ensure the overall form and function of your smile.
