In brief: Malocclusion
means the teeth are not aligned properly.
Severe malocclusion is also known as: crowded teeth, misaligned teeth, crossbite, overbite, underbite, or anterior open bite. See an orthodontist for evaluation and treatment.

In brief: Bite off
Malocclusion is simply when the teeth do not fit in an anatomically correct position.
This can be the result of numerous things. Consulting your dentist and orthodontist are the best first steps to correcting malocclusion.
