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:
- Bottom front teeth may harm the gums above the top front teeth
- Speech impediments
- May cause jaw problems
- 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
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
