This is the #1 complaint we hear from patients! No one likes overlapping, untidy teeth that gets stained easily. We understand that its hard to clean; keeps getting food jammed in between and sometimes it looks as though there's a missing tooth when it's really just hidden behind.
Scissors bites describes a problem when the back teeth are displaced so far towards the cheek or tongue side that the biting surfaces miss each other completely. Just like how the cutting edges of a scissors shear past each other.
