Crossbite Causes and Treatment for Adults and Children
A crossbite occurs when the upper teeth fit inside the lower teeth. This misalignment may inhibit proper chewing or use of teeth. This can also cause uneven jaw growth and an unbalanced facial appearance. If not corrected, a crossbite can increase the risk of temporomandibular joint (TMJ) problems, symptoms of which include pressure on the jaw joint, head, neck, and cheek pain. A crossbite can also leave the jaw in an awkward position.
Some causes of crossbite include sinus problems, mouth breathing, delayed loss of baby teeth, and even heredity. Crossbites are effectively corrected with braces to realign your teeth and to improve the shape of your smile.
