    What is Malocclusion?

    The simplest explanation of malocclusion is that it occurs when your top and bottom teeth do not line up properly when you bite down. The severity of this can range from unnoticeable to causing pain while eating or speaking, as well as a distorted facial appearance. Generally, the problem arises due to hereditary factors, injury or poor dental care; however there are also certain childhood behaviors such as thumb-sucking and overuse of bottles/pacifiers which can contribute. Regardless of what led you here though – know that we are here to help.

    Questions About Dental Malocclusion?

    Treatment Options for a Dental Malocclusion

    For the majority of malocclusions, orthodontic treatment is typically advised. ACE Dental’s method of choice? Invisalign aligners partnered with Propel Accelerator therapy for unequaled accuracy and comfort – a combination that has proven to be highly effective in many cases. However, when this process falls short, an occlusal equilibration must occur; whereby models are taken from both your upper and lower jaw which then get placed on a mechanical jaw (articulator) so the bite can be examined thoroughly by our dentists.

    After a meticulous examination, you return for a few follow-up appointments to carefully and non-surgically shape your teeth using an ultra delicate tooth polisher in order that they can properly function.

    If you are suffering from malocclusion or misaligned teeth, there is no need to despair; several solutions exist for treating this condition. Some of these include:

    • Orthodontic treatment with braces can be a life-changing experience, giving you the opportunity to have straight teeth and a beautiful smile which will last for many years and bring lifelong confidence.
    • Extracting teeth, otherwise known as tooth removal to eradicate superfluous pearly whites, is an essential dental procedure.
    • Perfecting or refining the shape of your teeth by reshaping, capping, and other techniques can give you a brighter smile.
    • Through dental surgery, your jawline can be aesthetically refined or reshaped to give you a more confident and attractive look.

    Is It Possible To Heal Malocclusion

    Orthodontic treatment can take up to two years, but once you have completed the process, a personalized clear plastic retainer will be provided for nightly wear in order to protect your jaw and teeth from shifting. If occlusal equilibration is required as well, our dentist may suggest using an additional night-time appliance that offers protection while alleviating any pressure on the jaw joint. After all treatments are finalized it is important not to forget regular dental examinations at our dental office so our dentist can closely monitor any changes in bite alignment over time.

    What Malocclusion Could Mean for Your Oral Health

    For most malocclusions, orthodontics is the preferred treatment plan. This could involve braces, retainers or clear teeth aligners. If overcrowding of the teeth is severe, some may need to be extracted before any additional steps can take place. In cases where misalignment of the jaw is pronounced, surgery may become necessary for repositioning and correcting deformities.

    Ensure Your Dental Care With Insurance Coverage

    The cost of your treatment for dental malocclusion will be contingent on the type of therapy needed. Our billing team will first get in touch with your insurance provider, if you have one, to understand what is included in your policy and associated fees. After that, we will contact you to go over coverage details as well as payment alternatives and medical financing possibilities available.
