Who does it affect?

1 in 5 people will experience some sort of malocclusion during their lifetime. Also, it can be genetic for some people and passed down from generation to generation. Most people begin to see signs of malocclusion when they are teenagers and begin to seek treatment for it. However, it may worsen over the years if left unattended.

How to treat it

The best way to treat malocclusion is with orthodontic procedures. Braces, Invisalign, and veneers are all used by a dentist to help fix misaligned teeth and bad bites. Most orthodontists recommend braces for teenagers and young adults as it is usually the quickest and most effective way to fix malocclusion. People use Invisalign if they want similar results but don’t want to have train-tracks. Finally, it is important to remember to maintain good dental hygiene while wearing braces to ensure no other problems arise.
