An overbite occurs when the upper row of teeth covers the lower row. Studies reveal that a tendency to have an overbite can be genetic, based on jawbone shape and size.
An overbite can cause these problems;
– Jaw pain that makes it hard for you to yawn, open your mouth or chew on food stuff.
– Overbites usually rub against each other and erode large enamel, thus increasing teeth sensitivity and tooth decay.
– You are at a higher risk of gum disease, if your teeth hit or tear your gums.
Talk to your dentist about your overbite, and learn about the solutions. It’s best to get the problem treated early on, to avoid complications.
