  • Distal: the lower jaw is pushed to the posterior according to the upper;
  • Open bite: the front teeth of the upper and lower jaw are not closed;
  • Mesial: the lower jaw row pushed forward and covers the upper;
  • Deep bite: the upper incisors cover more than half the lower teeth;
  • Crossbite: lateral teeth of the lower jaw overlap upper;
  • Overly crowded: very close tooth position.

WHEN CAN I CONSULT WITH ORTHODONTIST?
  • The diagnosis of deformation of bite and not aligned teeth can be carried out at the moment when the last milk tooth has grown, that is, approximately up to 3 years;
  • By this time, the child has about 20 teeth, by which you can understand whether the right bite is formed;
  • Treatment of incorrect bite is the best to begin with childhood, then it will bring less discomfort and take little time compared with correction of bite for adults;
  • The process of treatment fpr adults is somehowt stretched in time, since the jaw is already completely formed and not so easily deformed.
