Crossbite & Noticeable Jaw Pain

What Causes Crossbite?

Active thumb or finger sucking, unusual jaw development, airway constriction, tooth crowding, or heredity can all cause the condition known as crossbite. Crossbite can cause several problems, most notably:

  • Development of speech impediments
  • Emergence of permanent teeth
  • Excessive wear on the teeth
  • Improper jaw function and positioning
  • TMJ discomfort
