What is the occlusion on the right? How about the left? What does this mean for your patient’s oral health? Malocclusion or misalignment can lead to oral maladies that increase the risk of tooth loss and periodontal disease. Malocclusion may also be a marker for airway issues, TMJ disorders, and migraines, significantly impacting the patient's overall health. Receding gums and tooth wear isn't something we should dismiss as "normal". Taking the time to research these conditions can help us identify factors leading to long-term damage, so our patients enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles - saving them from painful procedures or high costs down the line.
