Change my arch shape
Hi, Jacob, good question. Arch shape can be changed by using expanders and those coupled with braces. The crossbite should be fixed. It can lead to TMJ problems on some individuals. The position of the jaws effects how your head sits on your cervical spine. Crossbite is pathology. It is best to find a dentist trained in neuromuscular orthodontics. Hope this helps.
