How Do You Fix an Overbite Problem?

Posted on 1/23/2023 by Barbara Ketchum
How Do You Fix an Overbite Problem?An overbite is a misalignment whereby the upper front teeth overlap the lower teeth. Most people refer to it as buck teeth in a less formal situation. Those individuals who have crooked teeth are mostly victims because their teeth meet at misaligned jaws and odd jaws. In some cases, an overbite can be mistaken for an overjet. Although these two might look similar, they always have a difference. If your problem i0 s an overbite, it can be easily fixed using the following techniques.

Fixing An Overbite Condition

For your teeth to meet at their normal bite, an overbite correction involves position adjustments. All dentists have various solutions and treatments for dental issues such as an overbite. Some treatments which can solve overbite issues include surgery, braces, and clear aligners. For to prevent worse scenarios of an overbite is to treat it before it is late. With early treatment, there can never be further development of upper teeth.

Fixing Overbite With Braces

Some dentists will prefer traditional braces for their patients. Pulling and pushing of teeth is enhanced by the elastic bands and metal wire in their correct position. However, if you want to look more modern, the newly invented high-tech braces are there for people like you. Besides, different braces put pressure in different ways.

Surgery To Fix Overbite

In rare cases, some overbites can only be corrected with surgery. In a situation whereby a person suffers severe overbite, surgery is the only efficient way to correct it. Treating a skeletal overbite is done by having a jaw operation. If the jaw is out of position and not only the teeth, but surgery can also effectively put the jaw in its correct position. Teeth extraction is a minor surgery that can be done to create more room for moving the teeth.
