What are the 3 types of malocclusion?

Malocclusion is generally classified into three categories: overbite, underbite, and crossbite. An overbite occurs when the upper teeth overlap the lower teeth too much, an underbite occurs when the lower teeth protrude beyond the upper teeth, and a crossbite occurs when the upper and lower teeth do not align properly.

Do I Have Malocclusion?

If you are concerned that you may have malocclusion, there are several signs to look for. Some common symptoms of malocclusion include:

  • Difficulty biting or chewing
  • Pain in the jaw or teeth
  • Teeth that are crowded or misaligned
  • A noticeable difference in the size or shape of the upper and lower jaw
  • Problems with speech, such as difficulty pronouncing certain words
