Dental Issues Related to an Overbite

An overbite is common in children and adults alike. Still, there are times when problems can arise from this type of misalignment. What are three examples which should be assessed by a dentist?

  • Overbite can wear down the enamel of your teeth over time; leading to decay.
  • If teeth grind against the gums, you may develop serious gum disease (periodontal disease).
  • An overbite problem may cause pain within or around the jaw.

“Overbites happen when the top row of your teeth essentially covers the lower row, especially in the front.”
