 What is Crossbite: A crossbite is a type of malocclusion, also known as a teeth misalignment, which occurs when the layers of upper teeth sit inside the lower teeth while the upper jaw & lower jaw are closed. The top teeth protrude into the space ordinarily occupied by the lower teeth as a result. A typical bite positions the upper teeth just slightly outside the space occupied by the lower teeth when the jaws are closed. A crossbite can affect one or more teeth in the upper or lower jaw, and it can occur on one side of the mouth or both sides at the same time.

Crossbite can lead to a number of uncomfortable side effects, including difficulty chewing food, uneven tooth wear, pain in the jaw, and even trouble with speaking. If your teeth aren’t properly aligned, it might be tough to clean in between them and around your gums, which can lead to cavities and gum disease.

Crossbites are mainly of two types:

  1. Anterior Crossbite: An Anterior Crossbites develops when the both the upper and the lower jaws are closed. it occurs when one or more of the top front teeth are positioned behind the bottom front teeth. This can affect one or both of the upper and lower front teeth.
  2. Posterior Crossbite: A posterior crossbite refers to the condition when one or more of the upper back teeth are positioned inside the lower back teeth when the jaws are closed.

Clear Aligners & Crossbites
