Overbite and dental health issues

If you have an overbite – where your upper teeth cover the lower ones – you may need to check it is not creating problems.

Key takeaways:

– An overbite can cause jaw pain, especially when chewing.

– Enamel wears out more quickly if your teeth rub.

– If your overbite causes your teeth to hit the gum it increases the risk of gum disease.

Braces are one way of correcting an overbite. Talk to your dentist if you need more information.

“The only way to properly and permanently correct an overbite is with professional treatment.”
