What is a "bad bite"?

When you have a malocclusion or "bad bite," you have a dental or facial irregularity that causes your teeth to be improperly aligned. Orthodontics is the branch of dentistry that focuses on the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of such irregularities.

How long will orthodontic treatment take?

Everyone is different, so there's really no way to predict how long your orthodontic treatment will take. Depending on the severity of the problem, it may last from just a few months to a few years.

In addition, after the course of active orthodontic treatment, patients will usually wear retainers to maintain the position of the teeth while the bone reforms around them.
