How to Correct an Overbite

Doctor working on patient


My overbite was causing a wide array of problems. There are several causes of an overbite, but it’s typically due to an underdevelopment of the lower jaw or genetics. Unfortunately, mine was getting worse with time, so I knew that I needed to take action. If an overbite isn’t addressed, it can sometimes cause the following problems:

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