A malocclusion can come in a variety of forms. Sometimes the upper or lower jaw may be misaligned, sometimes the teeth are crowded or crooked. The reasons for developing a malocclusion vary, from family history, to poor childhood habits like thumb-sucking. Whatever the reason, making sure you get proper treatment is imperative. True, orthodontic treatment improves the quality of your smile, adding to your overall confidence, but perhaps more important, it increases your potential for good oral health. Misaligned or crowded teeth tend to be more difficult to clean than properly aligned teeth, and as such, problems like dental decay or gum disease pose a greater risk. With that said, not every adult patient is going to be excited about the prospect of wearing braces.
