What Is a Crossbite? (Should I Worry If My Child Has One?)

A crossbite happens when the upper and lower teeth grow at different rates, or times, or even when the lower jaw grows disproportionately with the upper jaw.
An example of a crossbite would be if the lower jaw is out of line with the upper jaw (kind of like a box that won’t close right because one of the hinges is bent).
Signs of a crossbite may include:

  • Snoring
  • Difficultly breathing
  • Chewing on one side of the mouth or the other or painful chewing.

Having a crossbite is closely linked with other orthodontic issues – the sooner you take care of it, the better!

Do you wonder how you can fix a crossbite? Orthodontic treatment can fix this issue as well as others with different types of braces such as metal braces. Discover more about metal braces on my next post!

Check out the book “Stop Hiding Your Smile!” by Dr. Dustin S. Burleson, D.D.S. to learn more about orthodontic treatment.
