A Look at Treatment Options for Overbites
When teeth are not properly aligned, it can make it harder to chew, speak, and even maintain good oral hygiene. An overbite occurs when the bottom jaw is further back than the top jaw, resulting in top teeth that jut forward more than they should.
As you will see in this video, it is important to visit an orthodontist to figure out the best treatment option for an overbite. Surgery or tooth extraction may be necessary as well as braces to slowly move teeth into the proper position. Once the braces are placed on the teeth, rubber bands connect the jaws to aid in the repositioning process.
