As its name suggests, an overbite occurs when the upper front teeth fall over the lower set of front teeth.

They can lead to serious health concerns such as increased tooth deterioration and functional issues in the muscles of the jaw.

They can also pose aesthetic concerns for those looking to achieve a super smile and healthy bite.

Untreated overbites may lead to the following dental problems:

  • Bottom front teeth may harm the gums above the top front teeth
  • Speech impediments
  • May cause jaw problems
  • >Unattractive smile
