Orthodontics in New Westminster
“Malocclusions” is the term dentists use to describe misalignments in the teeth and jaws, usually due to crooked or overcrowded teeth. Malocclusions can be problematic for a variety of reasons, including creating difficulties with speaking and chewing, and increasing the risk of other dental issues, such as gum disease and tooth decay. Many patients also hope to correct malocclusions for cosmetic reasons. Orthodontic treatments are designed to realign the teeth and jaw, leading to better oral health and greater confidence in your smile.
