A bad bite, also called a malocclusion, can cause several problems, such as unsightly and difficulty speaking and chewing. It can also make it hard to clean your teeth properly, leading to gum disease and tooth decay. In addition, bad bites can cause headaches, jaw pain, and neck pain. In severe cases, your speech can even be affected.
