Malocclusion of the teeth occurs when teeth are misaligned, which can cause difficulty for teeth to perform their normal functions. In the worst cases, serious oral health complications can result. Because of this, any type of diagnosed malocclusion should be addressed. The treatments available vary from bonding or reshaping a maloccluded tooth, to use of an orthodontic appliance to correct the position of the tooth. Consult with your dentist at Sweet Tooth Dentistry to learn more about what’s right for you.
