Malocclusions

It’s good to do what it takes to help prevent cavities and gum disease, but as much as you brush your teeth or floss, you’re not going to be able to prevent every dental problem.  Some dental problems are hereditary or the result of injury, or other environmental factors.  One of the most common dental problems that may be unpreventable is a bite problem, which is known as a malocclusion.  Malocclusions can include;

***Abnormal jaw sizes, which can lead to overbites or under bites.

***Abnormally shaped teeth, this includes teeth that grow in an odd shape, or even at an angle.

Or

*** Extra teeth, a rare occurrence, which is also hereditary.

If you have any questions, consult your dentist.
