What is Overbite?
Overbite Correction Starts by Aligning the Jaw, Not the Teeth.
This is one of the types of occlusal deviation in which the correlation between the upper and lower teeth does not meet the standard rate, the upper jaw is over-exposed compared to the lower jaw.
People with overbite often tend to have lips that do not close their mouth, teeth are exposed or tilted forward, making their face look out of balance and less charming. In particular, this defect also makes it difficult for the function to chew food, indirectly adversely affect the digestive system.
The cause of overbite is often hereditary (accounting for 70%), the rest is due to bad habits at a young age, such as frequent sucking hands, sticking out the tongue, biting the lower lip….
Although overbite is not dangerous to your health, it affects the facial aesthetics and makes people lose confidence when smiling or communicating with others.
