An overbite occurs when the upper front teeth extensively cover the lower front teeth when the jaws close, potentially causing excessive wear on the lower teeth and jaw joint problems.e 3
An underbite is the reverse of an overbite, where the lower front teeth extend past the upper front teeth when the jaws close. This condition can lead to challenges in chewing and speaking and may contribute to jaw issues.
A crossbite occurs when some of the upper teeth are located inside the lower teeth instead of outside, causing improper jaw alignment. Crossbites can lead to tooth wear, gum recession, etc.
An open bite is when the upper and lower front teeth don't touch when the back teeth are clenched. This can result in speech issues and chewing problems.
Crowding occurs when there's insufficient jaw space for all teeth, leading to overlap or crookedness.
Spacing refers to gaps between teeth caused by missing teeth, which can affect one's smile and oral function.
