A malocclusion is a misalignment or incorrect relation between the teeth of the two dental arches when they approach each other as the jaws close.
Types of Malocclusion:
A malocclusion where the bite is OK (the top teeth line up with the bottom teeth) but the teeth are crooked, crowded, or turned.
A malocclusion where the upper teeth stick out past the lower teeth.
A malocclusion where the lower teeth stick out past the upper teeth, also called an ‘overbite’
