The Importance of Correcting your Overbite from Canley Heights Dental Care

by | Oct 15, 2020 | Orthodontics

Overbites occur when the upper teeth stick out more than the lower teeth.

Often, an overbite can be a problem with crooked teeth when, in fact, the person’s teeth and jaws are not lining up correctly.

Overbites are easier to straighten in children and teenagers since their jaws are still young and developing.

Many people do not realise that they have an overbite, as they believe their condition is not serious enough to seek dental attention.

This could also be because other forms of overbites are so minor to be noticeable.

What Happens If I Don’t Have It Treated? 

Overbites, if left untreated, may result in the following dental problems:

  1. Bottom front teeth may harm the gums on the top front teeth
  2. Speech difficulties
  3. Jaw problems
  4. Unattractive smile
