in the teeth position beyond the limit of normal occlusion. It is classified as follows
according to Edward .H. Angle:
Class I malocclusion is the normal relationship of the molars but line of occlusion
incorrect because of the malposed teeth, rotation or other causes
Class II malocclusion is the lower molar distally positioned relative to upper molar,
line of occlusion not specified.
Class III malocclusion is the lower molar mesially positioned relative to upper molar,
line of occlusion not specified.
