    Malocclusion is the improper positioning of the teeth and jaws. It is a variation of normal growth and development which can affect the bite, the ability to clean teeth properly, gum tissue health, jaw growth, speech development, and appearance. Malocclusion refers to any degree of irregular contact of the teeth of the child’s upper jaw with the teeth of the lower jaw. This includes overbites and crossbite, as well as crowding of child’s teeth. Most children seek treatment of malocclusion for cosmetic rather than medical reasons. Bullying is common in schools nowadays, numerous population-based studies have suggested that children with certain malocclusions are more likely to be the victims of bullying, such as teasing, name-calling, and physical bullying. The main aim of this reviews the types of malocclusion.
