Here are some potential issues:
Crowding: Buildup of plaque and tartar. Harbors harmful periodontal bacteria. Risk of periodontal disease, tooth, and bone loss.
Spacing: Food lodges between teeth. Risk of sore, tender gums. Risk of periodontal disease.
Deep Bite: Over-erupted lower front teeth that can damage the palate. Premature wear and chipping of the lower front teeth.
A Potential Health Risk
If left untreated, malocclusion can lead to periodontal disease and premature wear of teeth that can worsen over time and even result in tooth loss. Periodontal disease may also increase the risk for atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease. (hardening of the arteries)
