The Importance of Correcting your Overbite from Passion Family Dental North Lakes

by | Mar 18, 2021 | Orthodontics

It’s a common misconception to think that orthodontic treatments are simply for aesthetic purposes only.

In reality, having crooked teeth or an irregular bite can have lasting effects on your general oral health.

So, what if you have an overbite?

Correcting your overbite, or any kind of malocclusion for that matter, will not only improve your smile, but will also prevent serious dental problems in the future!

Untreated overbites may lead 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

What We Can Do at Passion Family Dental North Lakes

Children and Teenagers

  • Removal of temporary teethto give space for permanent teeth to grow in straight
  • Growth modification device– position the jaw properly
  • Braces– align the teeth to correct the overbite and the jaw
  • Retainers– a device used after any orthodontic treatment that helps keep the teeth in position

Adults

  • Braces– move teeth to fix an overbite
  • Teeth Extraction– we try to avoid this procedure but will do this in very serious cases to allow the teeth to move
  • Surgery– jaw problems for bone-type overbite cases can only be fixed with surgery for older patients
