The Importance of Correcting your Overbite from Dentists on Vincent

by | May 29, 2024 | Orthodontics

Many people don’t realise they have an overbite because they think their condition is not severe enough to seek professional attention.

This is also because other cases of overbites are too minor to be noticeable.

Overbites may lead to the following dental problems:

  • The bottom front teeth may damage the gums above the top front teeth.
  • Speech difficulties
  • It may cause jaw alignment issues.
  • Unattractive smile

Overbite Correction Treatments in Leederville

For Young Patients

Removal of temporary teeth: Orthodontics involves making permanent teeth available to achieve a desirable alignment. However, by removing temporary teeth, a foundation is built for permanent teeth to come in straight; thus, the risk of long-term bite problems can be prevented early on.

Growth modification device: A displaced jaw could cause such problems in a few cases. Our growth modification devices are essential for directing the jaw into its proper position and providing a preventative measure for overbite correction.

Dental Braces:  Traditional but one of the best, dental braces are effective at moving teeth slowly to correct overbites and improve jaw alignment. With individualised treatment plans, we make specific alterations to get optimal results.

Retainers: After the braces, retainers become essential to the process. These custom devices retain the corrected positions of the teeth, keeping the teeth from relapsing and achieving long-term stability.

For Adult Patients

Braces: You can always have a straighter, healthier smile regardless of age. Our orthodontic solutions for adults start with several types of bandages for every patient’s need and successfully deal with the case of overbites and a better dental arrangement.

Teeth removal: Although we emphasise conservative approaches, large overbites would call for affected teeth extraction to facilitate alignment. Be assured that such choices are made carefully to achieve the best possible treatment result and maintain dental health.

Surgery: Surgical correction is often necessary for conditions where skeletal errors are the primary cause of overbites. Our team collaborates closely with experienced oral surgeons to deliver the comprehensive care adult patients need.

Benefits of Overbite Treatments

  • Straighter Teeth and Better Bite Alignment: Orthodontic treatments like braces or removable aligners work slowly and can alter the teeth’ position gradually to a situation where they occupy their correct locations and create a perfect bite pattern.
  • Enhanced Facial Appearance: A crowded mouth caused by an overbite can present multiple dental problems such as tooth decay, gum disease and TMJ disorders. By having the teeth appropriately aligned, orthodontic treatments enable individuals to preserve better oral health and hence greatly minimise the risk of these complications.
  • Improved Oral Health: Dental issues like gum disease, tooth decay, and TMJ disorders are more common in people who bite their mouths too often. Orthodontic treatments reduce the frequency of these problems by straightening the teeth and, consequently, better oral hygiene practices.
  • Early Intervention: While tongue bites are easily applied regardless of age, making a diagnosis during adolescence can significantly increase the accuracy and predictability of treatment. Nevertheless, there is always time to undergo orthodontic treatment, even in adulthood, and always get your overbite corrected.
  • Confidence Boost: They enhance self-confidence and social skills. Individuals become more comfortable and confident in their facial appearance.
  • Long-Term Oral Health: Altering overbites at the initial stages will avoid future dental disorders due to uneven teeth. This will result in better teeth and gum health.
