OVERBITE AND UNDERBITE

FTS-Overbite_and_Underbite-Section1

For most people, the teeth meet together comfortably with a small ‘overbite’, where the upper teeth sit slightly in front of the lower teeth. In some patients, this overlap may be large and is known as a ‘deep bite’. Alternatively, the lower teeth can be placed in front of the upper teeth when the mouth is closed, causing an ‘underbite’.

This happens when the lower jaw or the teeth are positioned too far forward.

Underbites and deep overbites can cause a number of problems. Sufferers are often unhappy with the aesthetic appearance of their smile, which impacts their confidence and erodes self-esteem. From a functional perspective, teeth that don’t fit together well can make it difficult to chew properly and can also cause speech problems. Where the surfaces of the teeth are poorly aligned, increased and uneven wear is likely and there’s a higher risk of fractured teeth and the need for fillings.

At Face Teeth Smile, we offer Invisalign® teeth straightening to tackle the problem of underbites and overbites. As Invisalign® Diamond Providers, we’re among the country’s most skilled and experienced providers of the system.

After discussing your treatment goals, our expert dentists will assess the position of your teeth and jaws, then come up with a bespoke plan to gently reposition the teeth and correct the bite. Transparent Invisalign® retainers are worn for 22 hours a day and are designed to realign your teeth gently and gradually, achieving transformational results.

If you’re concerned about your bite, book a Face Teeth Smile consultation to discuss how Invisalign® could work for you.
