Malocclusion simply means poor bite. The upper teeth should fit slightly over the lower teeth preferably. Those with serious malocclusions may need treatment to correct the problem. Treatment can alleviate pressure on the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) and make teeth easier to clean, reducing the risk of decay.
