How to Manage an Overbite
Posted on 11/25/2018 by Clay Keith dds
Are you unhappy with the way that the teeth of your upper and lower jaw line up? If so, you might have a bite issue, one of the most common of which is an overbite.

Otherwise known as malocclusion, an overbite can leave you feeling self-conscious about your smile, but there are treatments to help. What Caused Your Overbite? There are several causes for an overbite. The most common is the size and/or shape of the teeth or jaw.

How Can You Treat It? There are a few treatment options available in order to correct an overbite.
