Do You Need to Get an Overbite Corrected?

Posted on 1/20/2018 by Jeffery Gerhardt
Overbite Advanced Family Dentistry & Braces TX 78613Yes, you should have this corrected as soon as possible. Overbites, and even overjet, can lead to a plethora of unwanted diseases. Not only can an overbite lead to a lot of painful episodes and a speech impediment, it can cause the unconscious grinding of the teeth and Temporomandibular Joint Disorder.

The grinding of teeth can lead to tooth decay while a Temporomandibular Joint Disorder can lead to tinnitus, headaches, immense pain and an overall decrease in the quality of life.

How Soon Should I Have The Overbite Corrected?

Overbite is normal for toddlers until 6 months old. If it persists even up to your son or daughter's childhood, it can lead not only to a lisp, but also to lower self-esteem. One way to remedy this as early as possible is to have braces or removable retainers to have the teeth grow in the direction and size that it should be. Orthodontics would really help. The best age to have braces and removable orthodontics would be 10 to 13 years old.

How About for Adults? Is it Too Late?

It is never too late. The overbite can still be treated, but there are lesser options available. You can still have removable orthodontics. Braces and retainers can also help, but most of the time a removable crown is more often used. For more severe cases, surgery should be done to correct the position of the teeth.

Deep overbite correction can be done to make sure that your facial profile be corrected to what it should be. There are a lot of options on how to correct an overbite.

Surgery should be dealt as a last resort, and there are non-surgical solutions available for everyone. An overbite can make your face rounder than it should be and can make you look sunken and older.
