Wickodontics: a combination surgical-orthodontic technique. ...Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

The biggest problem with malocclusion is keeping the teeth and gums clean around the crowding. You must get a dental cleaning every 6 months to keep teeth and periodontia healthy around the crowding. If you maintain oral hygiene you shouldn't have any problems. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
