The upper teeth partially or completely cover the lower teeth when biting together, and the lower teeth sometimes touch the roof of the mouth.

“When I bite together I can’t see my bottom teeth.”

In addition, if you notice any of the following in your child...

  • early or late loss of baby teeth
  • difficulty in chewing or biting
  • mouth breathing
  • jaws that shift or make sounds

...check with your orthodontist.

  • speech difficulties
  • biting the cheek or the roof of the mouth
  • facial imbalance
  • grinding or clenching of the teeth
