What is an Overbite?

An overbite is a form of malocclusion; occlusion is the way your teeth are lined up. Malocclusion, therefore, means you are having a misalignment on your teeth. The malformation of your teeth can actually cause you to talk differently or have a harder time chewing your food. You may even develop a lisp because of this rather frustrating condition. Thankfully, overbites are some of the most common forms of this malocclusion and are the easiest to fix.

How to Correct an Overbite?

Fixing an overbite may seem like a long and difficult journey to head down, but it can actually be easy to accomplish with little nuisances along the way. For instance, you can take the more comfortable approach and use Invisalign. Invisalign is made and used at your leisure so you can decide to use it whenever you want. However, it’s recommended to keep it in throughout the day except to eat. Nonetheless, many children have trouble sticking to this regime, which is why there are more fortified options.

Overbite Correction With Braces

Fixing your overbite with braces can be one of the best decisions you can do. For one, you will see results quicker than Invisalign and you won’t have to worry about when you need to wear them. The brackets and wires used to make the braces will slowly push your teeth where they need to be, so you will have the perfect smile when it’s all done.

Overbite Correction for Adults

While it’s recommended to give braces to children at a younger age, there is nothing stopping you from getting them as an adult. There is no age limit to having a perfect smile. Using braces or Invisalign will ensure you have the smile you want at the end of it all.
