There might be different types of malocclusion: crowding (a lack of space for the teeth within the jaw), underbite (when your lower teeth and jaw protrude in front of the upper teeth), spacing (when there’s a gap between the teeth, so called diastema), and more. You can read about different malocclusion types in “Treatable Cases”, and also check the successful treatment cases for various malocclusion types in our orthodontic blog.

Properly aligned teeth can also eliminate the issues that can be caused by a wrong bite, speech problems or chewing perplexity, jaw troubles, and extensive wear on the tooth enamel.
