Malocclusion – A Common But Fixable Problem

Fixing A Bad BiteThe method used for fixing malocclusion will differ from patient to patient. Some patients will have severe malocclusion while others will have a misalignment that is there but hardly noticeable and not needing of treatment. In many cases the treatment for malocclusion is to correctly position the teeth. This is often done through the use of braces. Teeth that are irregularly shaped can also be reshaped in order to provide for a more normalized shape. Though malocclusion doesn’t require an immediate trip to the dentist, it is always a condition to be aware of. If your malocclusion is severe enough, cleaning the teeth can become harder and the tension and jaw created from an unbalanced bite can weaken a tooth that could lead to tooth breakage or tooth loss. Rarely does anyone have a perfectly aligned smile. However, if you want to get treatment for your malocclusion, Dr. Siegel can help you.
