The Importance of Correcting your Overbite from Casula Dental Care
A lot of people don’t realise they have an overbite, as they believe their condition is not serious enough to seek dental attention.
This could also be because other cases are so minor to be noticeable.
Overbites occur when the upper teeth protrude over the lower teeth.
There are cases when an overbite can appear to be a problem with crooked teeth when the person’s teeth and jaws are not lining up properly.
Overbites are easier to treat in children and teenagers since their jaws are still developing.
What Happens to Untreated Overbites
Untreated overbites may result in the following problems:
- Lower front teeth may harm the gums above the upper front teeth
- Speech impediments
- May cause jaw alignment issues
- Unattractive smile
