My dentist told me I have a cross bite that involves 3 molars on each side of my upper jaw. I also have gum recession on 2 molars (numbers 3 and 14) that is sometimes sensitive. I have visited some orthodontists and of course they want to fix the cross bite. However, other dentists I've been able to speak with tell me that fixing the cross bite may not be the best thing for the recession since pushing the posterior teeth laterally may be a bad idea. Should I get the cross bite fixed or not? I wouldn't mind getting my teeth perfect, but I don't want to if it will hurt my gums. I have no problems associated with the cross bite, such as a popping jaw or odd wear on my teeth.
