A crossbite is when one or more of the upper teeth bite inside of the lower teeth.
Crowding of the teeth occurs when there is a lack of space for all the teeth to fit normally within the jaws.
Spacing of the teeth, the opposite of crowding, is an excess of available space, resulting in gaps between the teeth.
Protrusion of the teeth, also known as overjet, is when the lower teeth are too far behind the upper front teeth.
An open bite is an insufficient vertical overlap of the teeth.
A deep bite is an excessive overlap of the upper front teeth to the lower front teeth.
An underbite is when the lower jaw is excessively larger or more developed than the upper jaw, or a combination thereof.
Impacted teeth can be caused by improper positioning of the teeth while they are in the developmental stage, prior to eruption.
