How to Correct an Overbite with Orthodontics

April 7th, 2016

An overbite, or an excessive overlap of the upper front teeth to the lower front teeth, can cause an individual a wide array of problems. Whether due to an underdevelopment of the lower jaw or genetics, the condition may worsen if the overbite is not corrected in a timely manner. Severe overbites can cause the following problems, even at an early age:

  • Increased crowding of teeth
  • Blocked out permanent teeth
  • Tooth wear
  • Gum and bone loss
  • TMJ pain
  • Headaches
  • Interfered chewing and speech
