A cross-bite is a condition that occurs when the upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth. Cross-bites may cause tooth stratification and misaligned jaw growth, and can lead to conditions like TMJ, so it’s therefore important that they be corrected.
Fortunately, modern orthodontic treatment can provide great success in the realignment of a cross-bite. Many patients benefit from the use of braces, dental expanders and other types of correctional tools.
