More Than Aesthetics: The Impacts of an Overbite

25th January 2018

Most of us associate overbites with an off-balanced smile and yet, the misalignment of our teeth could potentially lead to other situations which might be a bit more serious. Let’s take a look at why an overbite should always be assessed by your dentist.

– If the upper teeth grind against the lower row, valuable enamel will be lost.

– Jaw pain and similar muscular discomfort can result from an overbite.

– Teeth which cut into the gums can lead to gum disease if the condition is left unchecked.

“Fortunately, correcting an overbite is often something that can be done simply and permanently with orthodontic treatment.”
