The Importance of Correcting your Overbite from Captivate Dental

by | Oct 15, 2020 | Orthodontics

Overbites happen when the upper teeth stick out over the lower teeth.

Overbites are easier to correct in younger patients since their jaws are still developing.

Many people don’t think that they have an overbite, as they believe their condition is not serious enough to seek dental attention.

If left untreated, overbites may result in the following dental problems:

  • Lower front teeth may harm the gums above the upper front teeth
  • Speech impediments
  • May cause jaw problems
  • Unattractive smile

Treatment for Children and Teenagers

Extraction of baby teeth to give space for permanent teeth to grow straight

Growth modification – helps to position the jaw properly

Braces – move the teeth to correct the bite

Retainers – used after orthodontic treatment that help to keep the teeth in place

Treatment for Adults

Braces – move the teeth to fix the bite

Teeth Extraction – done in very severe cases to allow the teeth to move

Oral Surgery – jaw problems for bone-type overbites can only be corrected with oral surgery

Benefits of Treating Overbites

  • Straighter teeth and bite
  • More attractive smile and improved appearance
  • Healthier teeth and gums

For bite problems, don’t hesitate to see your dentist immediately.
