Abnormal occlusion of the teeth or jaws
A deviation from normal occlusion (the way the teeth should meet), or an incorrect alignment or position of the upper with the lower teeth; any number of teeth may be involved
misaligned bite, can be the result of missing teeth (e.g., because of caries or congenital defect); children with hyper- or hypotonia are also at increased risk for malocclusion
referring to teeth, when the bite does not line up properly
Teeth that are misaligned or fit together poorly when the jaws are closed.
improper alignment of the jaws and teeth
Any deviation from a physiologically acceptable relationship of the upper and lower teeth with each other. Malocclusions have been divided into several categories (See Occlusion).
malposition of the two jaws resulting in the faulty meeting of the teeth.
Improper meeting of the upper and lower teeth.
Failure of the upper and lower teeth and jaws to come together forming a proper bite, including overshot, undershot and anterior crossbite (wry)..
is a bad bite, a condition in which the opposing teeth do not mesh normally.
(dentistry) a condition in which the opposing teeth do not mesh normally
This refers to how your teeth fit together. Class I is when the teeth align with the bottom teeth but may require correction for crowded or malaligned teeth. Class II is when the upper teeth/jaw protrude over the lower teeth. This is also referred as an overbite. Class III is when the lower teeth/jaw protrudes past the upper teeth. This is also referred to as an underbite.
malposition and imperfect contact of the mandibular (lower) and maxillary (upper) teeth.
This refers to any decree of irregular contact of the teeth of the upper jaw with the teeth of the lower jaw. This includes overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
Misalignment of the upper or lower teeth causing a poorly adjusted, uncomfortable bite. This is often the cause of pain in the jaw joints, also known as TMJ Syndrome.
a poor alignment of the upper and lower teeth.
improper alignment of the upper and lower teeth.
abnormal contact between upper and lower teeth
Abnormality in the way in which the teeth come together.
A condition whereby the teeth are not correctly positioned, or when one or more of them is missing.
a term to describe the incorrect positioning of the upper teeth from the lower teeth
When teeth are positioned incorrectly
Teeth having the lower incisors extending in front of the upper incisors or meeting with no overlap. This condition may be hereditary and may also be known as buck or wolf teeth.
Abnormal position of the teeth or jaws.
The improper alignment of biting or chewing surfaces of upper and lower teeth.
Refers to abnormal or malposition relationships of the maxillary teeth to the mandibular teeth. Correction of malocclusion involves orthodontic treatment.
A misalignment of the upper and lower teeth Mandible: The lower jaw
Meaning bad bite. Any condition that does not conform to the normal bite of the teeth.
Teeth that are not aligned properly.
Such malposition and contact of the maxillary and mandibular teeth as to interfere with the highest efficiency during the excursive movements of the jaw that are essential for mastication. (Jablonski, Illustrated Dictionary of Dentistry, 1982)
The dental term for poor positioning of your teeth.
Incorrect position of the teeth resulting in teeth or jaws that do not meet properly
"bad bite" or misalignment of the teeth or jaws.
A bad bite caused by incorrect positions of the upper or lower teeth.
Any deviation from a normal occlusion.
The technical term for crooked teeth or an improper bite.
Improper alignment of the biting or chewing surfaces of the teeth.
misalignment of teeth and or jaws
"Bad bite" or misalignment of the upper and lower teeth
An inherited defect where the upper and lower jaws do not let the teeth meet, resulting in long, uneven teeth extending out of the rabbit's mouth.
A bite which causes problems with either muscles, joints, teeth, gums, or bones
A deviation from normal occlusion, that is, incorrect positioning of the upper teeth in relation to the lower teeth.
Faulty contact between the upper and lower teeth when the jaw is closed. ( 4-12)
an abnormal alignment of the teeth.
This means a "bad bite" such as crowded teeth, spaced teeth, protrusion of the upper or the lower teeth, crossbite, etc.
An abnormal relationship between the occlusal (chewing or biting surfaces of the maxillary and mandibular) teeth when they are in contact.
Abnormal contact between opposing teeth.
The misalignment of opposing teeth in the upper and lower jaws.
condition in which the upper and lower teeth do not fit together properly. An overbite is a common example of a malocclusion.
A problem in the way the upper and lower teeth fit together in biting or chewing.
Incorrect alignment of the upper and lower teeth
Faulty bites such as overbites or underrates.
Poor positioning of your teeth. Class I malocclusion A Malocclusion where your bite is ok (your top teeth line up with your bottom teeth) but your teeth are crooked, crowded or turned. Class II malocclusion A Malocclusion where your upper teeth stick out.
Refers to an abnormal fit of the upper and lower dental structures.
an orthodontic problem that means "bad bite," including crowded, missing, or crooked teeth, extra teeth, or a misaligned jaw.
A deviation in intramaxillary and/or intermaxillary relations of teeth from normal occlusion. Often associated with other dentofacial deformities. See Angle Classification.
A malocclusion refers to the misalignment of teeth and/or incorrect relation between the teeth of the two dental arches. The upper arch is called the maxilla and the lower is called the mandible.
