What is a crossbite?

A crossbite is a dental condition that is caused by an improper positioning of the teeth. And it can be seen when the lower jaw doesn’t line up properly with the upper jaw. It can happen on one side of the mouth, both sides, or even on only one tooth.

What causes a crossbite?

The most common causes of a crossbite are an underdeveloped lower jaw, a high palate, or a thumb sucking habit. Some people also have a genetic predisposition to this dental issue, which can lead to infection. This can then lead to other issues such as tooth loss and bone loss.

What problems occur due to a crossbite?

The symptoms of a crossbite can usually be detected in early childhood, often with symptoms such as difficulty chewing food, speaking clearly, and wearing down teeth prematurely. A crossbite can lead to serious orthodontic issues such as crowding of teeth and difficulty chewing food.

Fixing crossbite with clear aligners?

For those wondering can clear aligners fix a crossbite? The short answer is, yes!

Clear aligners are popular solutions for individuals who want to fix their crossbite. They are made of clear, flexible plastic which is why they can be fitted by one’s self. These aligners are designed to gradually push the upper and lower teeth together in order to correct the bite in a gradual manner.

People with crossbite can benefit from wearing these aligners because they don’t require any outside help or involvement, meaning that they can be worn at all times.

However, people with crossbite should consult with their dentist before choosing this treatment route.
