2. Displacement of a tooth or teeth from a normal position in the dental arch.

malalignment

while each person has a slightly different joint configuration, malalignment is considered to be the abnormal position of a structure relative to another. In sport it can occur, for example, following incomplete treatment of a fracture and results in loss of function with secondary effects, e.g. malalignment of the tibia following a fracture can result in a variety of overuse injuries including pain in the back, lower limb and/or foot, with restriction of activity.
