The Importance of Correcting your Overbite from Warner Lakes Dental

by | Oct 15, 2020 | Orthodontics

Overbites are present when the upper teeth stick out too far beyond the lower teeth.

How do I treat and correct an overbite?

A lot of people don’t think that they have an overbite, as they assume their condition is not serious enough for them to seek dental attention.

This could also be because some cases of overbites are too minor to be noticeable.

Untreated overbites may lead to the following dental problems:

  1. Bottom front teeth may harm the gums above the top front teeth
  2. Speech impediments
  3. May cause jaw problems
  4. Unattractive smile

Overbite Correction Treatments

For Children and Teenagers

Removal of baby teeth to make room for permanent teeth to grow in straight

Growth modification device – helps to position the jaw

Braces – move the teeth to correct the overbite as well as the jaw

Retainers – a device used after braces that help to keep the teeth in place

For Adults

Braces – move the teeth to fix an overbite

Teeth extraction – dentists try to avoid this procedure but will do this in very severe cases to allow the teeth to move

Surgery – jaw problems for bone-type overbites can only be corrected with surgery for adults

Benefits of Treating Overbites

  • Straighter teeth and better bite
  • More attractive smile & improved facial appearance
  • Healthier teeth and gums

Get rid of your reservations about your overbite and get your smile corrected.

Whether you opt for braces, clear aligners, or even extraction or surgery, you can smile with confidence.

Your treatment can give you the grin your proud to show off, instead of hiding behind closed lips.
