Patients with an underbite have unique dental needs, which is why the talented doctors at Zaytoun Orthodontics have extensive experience diagnosing underlying causes, explaining treatment options and determining the best time to begin.
What is an Underbite?
An underbite occurs when the lower teeth and jaw protrude in front of the upper teeth. A variety of factors can cause an underbite, including:
- Underbites can be a genetically inherited trait
- Undergrowth of the upper jaw
- Overgrowth of the lower jaw
- Missing or Crowded teeth
How are Underbites Treated?
When it comes to underbites in children, teens and young adults, early diagnosis and treatment planning are important. At Zaytoun Orthodontics, we treat underbites in our Cary, Garner and Raleigh locations using braces and orthodontic appliances.
