What is a Crossbite?
Do you suffer from a crossbite?
A crossbite is a form of malocclusion whereby your jaws are mis-aligned horizontally. The teeth of the upper or lower jaw must be moved toward the right or the left to achieve a perfect alignment between the top and lower jaws.
Stated differently, the upper teeth may overhang the lower teeth on the left side, while the lower teeth may jut out to the right on the right side.
This condition is typically congenital, meaning you’re born with the mis-alignment in your jaw.
There are two methods used to correct a crossbite. A crossbite can be corrected with braces. Crossbites can also be corrected using a palate expander. Sometimes, both methods may be used to correct the condition.
If uncorrected, a crossbite can lead to significant problems that only get worse with time, including improper wear on your teeth, resulting in erosion of the enamel and ultimately, decay and tooth loss.
