The Importance of Correcting your Overbite from A Plus Dental

by | Oct 15, 2022 | Orthodontics

Are you self-conscious about your smile?

Do your teeth seem to be misaligned with one another?

Malocclusion can lead to several oral health concerns, including tooth decay, gum disease, and erosion, among many other things.

Untreated overbites may result 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 Teens

Removal of baby teeth – making room for permanent teeth to grow in straight

Growth modification device – helps to better position the jaw

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

Retainers – used post-braces that help to keep the teeth in the proper place

For Adults

Braces – move the teeth to fix overbites

Teeth extraction – dentists try to avoid this but will do this in very severe overbite cases to give the teeth more freedom to move

Surgery – jaw problems for skeletal-type overbite cases can only be corrected with surgery for adults

Benefits of Treating Overbites

  • Straighter teeth and improved bite
