1,191 Possible Causes for Malocclusion

  • Tonsillitis

    Some orthodontists believe that chronic mouth breathing from large tonsils and adenoids causes improper alignment of the teeth (malocclusion).[web.archive.org] This may sometimes cause the teeth to become badly aligned (malocclusion).[health24.com] Mood changes Excessive sleepiness Heart problems Some orthodontists believe chronic mouth breathing from large tonsils and adenoids causes improper alignment of the teeth (malocclusion[medicinenet.com]

  • Temporomandibular Joint Disorder

    However, it is possible that the symptoms of this disorder are associated with other types of malocclusion or even with nearly normal occlusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The hallmarks on physical examination are reduced or dysfunctional mandibular range of motion, malocclusion, and joint or preauricular tenderness.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There are many studies that have examined the inter‐relationships of the occlusion (malocclusion) and the development of TMD.[doi.org]

  • Bruxism

    CONCLUSIONS: Malocclusion is not significantly associated with OHRQoL in patients with TMJ-OA.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] These include bruxism (tooth grinding), oral skill dysfunction, gross malocclusion due to effects of the abnormal orofacial muscle tone on tooth eruption, drooling of saliva[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] There is some literature to suggest that bruxism is correlated with temporomandibular disorders (TMDs) and malocclusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cleft Palate

    This case report describes the successful camouflage treatment to correct a moderate skeletal Class III malocclusion in a 19-year-old male cleft-palate patient.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] known history of cleft palate who developed velopharyngeal insufficiency after a Le Fort I osteotomy performed for the correction of maxillary hypoplasia and a Class III malocclusion[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Midfacial advancement Le fort osteotomies -Malocclusion -Infection -Necrosis Rhinoplasty -Alar stenosis 100.[slideshare.net]

  • Cerebral Palsy

    We looked for a possible association between overall functional impairment and malocclusion in this population.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] This article reports the treatment of a 12-year-old girl with ataxic cerebral palsy; she had a dental and skeletal Class II malocclusion, maxillary transverse deficiency,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] 13-year old boy with spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy visited dental clinic with chief complaints of mouth breathing and malocclusion.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Thalassemia

    CASE DESCRIPTION: A 16-year-old female patient with β-thalasse-mia major was referred with the complaints of severe facial deformity and malocclusion, resulting in psychosocial[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] hypopneumatisation of the frontal, maxillary, and sphenoid sinuses, filled with marrow containing bone 6 the ethmoid sinuses are spared due to lack of red bone marrow 6 dental malocclusion[radiopaedia.org] Thalassemia can result in maxillary enlargement, leading to an appearance known as chipmunk face, along with increased spaces between teeth, overbite, and malocclusion.[emedicine.medscape.com]

  • Cleidocranial Dysplasia

    Two cases of either sexes with complete absence of both clavicles, malocclusion and obvious facial asymmetry are being reported.[link.springer.com] An orthognathic surgery was performed in the maxilla and mandible during the same procedure to correct an existing dentofacial deformity (class III malocclusion).[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] skeletal dysplasia that is characterized by delayed closure of cranial sutures, aplastic or hypoplastic clavicle formation, short stature, and dental anomalies, including malocclusion[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Turner Syndrome

    This case report shows a two-phase orthodontic treatment in a patient with Turner syndrome with a Class II malocclusion and severe deep bite, which is an unusual feature in[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Dentist: problems with crowding of teeth and malocclusion should be addressed.[patient.info] Mouth - micrognathia, high palate and mandible abnormalities can result in crowding of teeth and malocclusion. Neck - short, webbed; low hairline.[patient.info]

  • Down Syndrome

    Dental malocclusion and macroglossia are associated. Technical modifications to increase macroglossia surgery safety and efficacy have been described.[doi.org] Other common oral manifestations of Down syndrome include enlarged hypotonic tongue, crusted and hypotonic lips, mouth breathing, narrow palate with crowded teeth, class III malocclusion[en.wikipedia.org] Katsaris, Malocclusion and the need for orthodontic treatment in 8‐year‐old children with Down syndrome: a cross‐sectional population‐based study, Special Care in Dentistry[doi.org]

  • Malocclusion

    The severity of the signs of malocclusion varies based on the class it belongs to. Anyway, the typical sign of malocclusion is the evident misalignment of the teeth.[symptoma.com] Long faces may lead to open bite malocclusion, while short faces can be coupled to a Deep bite malocclusion.[en.wikipedia.org] From Wikidata Jump to navigation Jump to search No description defined edit Language Label Description Also known as English malocclusion No description defined Statements[wikidata.org]
