The Importance of Correcting your Overbite from EK Dental Surgery

What is an Overbite?

Overbites happen when the upper front teeth protrude over the lower front teeth.

An overbite can often be a problem with crooked teeth when the person’s teeth and jaws are not lining up correctly.

What Happens If I Don’t Treat It?

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

This could also be because other cases of overbites are too minor to be noticeable.

Untreated overbites may result in the following dental problems:

  • Bottom front teeth may damage the gums above the top front teeth
  • Speech difficulties
  • May cause jaw problems
  • Unattractive appearance
What We Can Do at EK Dental Surgery
For Children and Teenagers

Removal of temporary teeth to 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

For 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
