The Problem with a Poor Bite
When children’s teeth do not erupt properly, they can develop malocclusion, or a “poor bite.” This causes several dental health issues, including:
- Jaw misalignment
- Difficulty maintaining proper oral hygiene
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
It is important to catch poor bite issues early to maintain good dental health throughout childhood. Come see Dr. Dean-Duru and learn more about orthodontics in Ashburn, VA.
