Will Orthodontic Treatment Fix My Overbite?

Are you wondering, “Will Orthodontic treatment fix my overbite?” If so, you are among millions of people, and the probable answer is yes. 

Let’s look at some interesting facts about overbites. Then, we’ll look at how orthodontics treatment can correct most overbites.

Why So Many People Have Overbites 

Of all the malocclusions (misaligned teeth), an overbite is the most common. It’s when the upper teeth protrude out over the lower teeth and sometimes called “buck teeth.”

Most people have a slight overbite. Why?

Thousands of years ago, as people started farming and eating softer processed foods, our teeth changed. People didn’t have to chew as thoroughly. In turn, our jaws changed, and many people developed overbites.

Interestingly, the overbite changed how people pronounce words, particularly with the “f” and “v” sounds. 

See the short video from Science Magazine below:

When an Overbite Requires Treatment

Generally, a small overbite might not present any problem. However, when an overbite is more pronounced, it can lead to serious health problems.

In cases of a severe overbite, the following health issues could develop:

  • Painful chewing and biting
  • Painful jaw
  • Breathing and speech problems
  • Tooth decay and loss
  • Resulting bone loss
  • Gum disease and related problems
  • Changes to the appearance

If you have noticed any of these issues, it’s time to consult an orthodontist. With modern treatment, we can correct an overbite in less time than ever before.

Thus, you can avoid health concerns and improve your appearance, and probably your confidence as well! Going forward with treatment is worth it in so many ways. Even better, it’s affordable with flexible financing solutions from John Orthodontics.

Can Orthodontic Treatment Fix My Overbite?

Today’s modern treatments are far superior to the past. Thus, you can expect faster, more comfortable, convenient, and discreet options.

Notably, braces look much sleeker, and there are clear options. 

If you’re a candidate, then Invisalign offers a great way to correct an overbite. Since you can take out the aligners to eat, you can enjoy your usual diet. Plus, few people will know you’re working on your smile.

Remember, people of all ages can benefit from orthodontic treatment. At John Orthodontics, we provide the best care available to kids age seven to adults of all ages.
