Orthodontists straighten teeth that are crooked or crowded or that have gaps between them. People who benefit from orthodontics include those whose facial profile shows an overbite, an underbite, protruding lips, or even a "weak chin." People who have dental and facial irregularities often have what is termed "malocclusion," sometimes called a "bad bite." A malocclusion can be corrected for cosmetic reasons, but in some cases crooked teeth can create speech problems or can be more susceptible to decay because the teeth are more difficult to keep clean.
