Malocclusion

Malocclusion

malocclusion

Is the improper positioning of the teeth and jaws. It is a variation of normal growth and development which can affect the bite, the ability to clean teeth properly, gum tissue health, jaw growth, speech development and appearance.

Every child is unique and must be treated individually. Your pediatric dentist will provide an estimate of the length of time required prior to initiating treatment. In complex malocclusions, the treatment may be divided into several phases which are scheduled to coincide with the child’s particular pattern of growth and development.
