Crossbite & Noticeable Jaw Pain

With offices in Raleigh, Cary, and Garner, Zaytoun Orthodontics is one of the Triangle’s leaders in CrossBite Correction and pain associated with this condition.

What causes Crossbite?

Active thumb or finger sucking, atypical jaw development, airway constriction, and tooth crowding can all cause the condition known as a crossbite. The condition can also be hereditary, so children with a family history of crossbite may be more at risk.

What can Crossbite cause?

If left untreated, the following can cause crossbite::

  • Speech impediments
  • Improper emergence of permanent teeth
  • Excessive and accelerated tooth wear
  • Improper jaw function and positioning
  • Asymmetrical facial growth
  • TMJ discomfort
