Orthodontic bite is the correct alignment of dental rows with full occlusion and maximum contact with each other. An incorrect bite can be formed due to various factors. It has a significant impact on a person's physiological and psychological health. An incorrect bite is almost always noticeable externally. More than 80% of all patients consult an orthodontist with issues related to an incorrect bite. Often, aside from external factors, an incorrect bite may not bother the patient. However, there are cases of complicated bite situations that require intervention not only from an orthodontist and surgeon but also from a gnathologist.
Thanks to modern technology, innovations, and new methods, there is a wide range of options for correcting the bite today. These options can include various bracket systems, transparent aligners, orthodontic plates and appliances, gnathological treatment, and more. Before we explore its varieties, let's determine its symptoms.
