Deep bites are when the front, upper teeth severely overlap the front, bottom teeth when the mouth is closed.
Open bites are characterized by upper and lower teeth that slant outward, not allowing the teeth to touch when the mouth is shut.
Crossbites are when upper and lower teeth are misaligned don’t fit together naturally. This can happen for single teeth or groups of teeth.
An underbite is when the bottom row of teeth overlaps the top row of teeth and is due to an underdeveloped jaw.
