Underbite: What It Is and How to Treat It

Is an underbite making you self-conscious about your smile?  Don’t worry.  You’re not alone!

Many people struggle with this common dental issue. This article will explain what it is, how it can be treated, and why our dental practice is the best choice for orthodontic care.

What is an Underbite?

An underbite is when your lower teeth extend forward, making them visible in front of your upper teeth. Various factors, including genetics, improper jaw growth, or thumb-sucking as a child, can cause it.

This misalignment affects not only your smile’s appearance but also your bite and chewing ability, leading to discomfort and other oral health problems.

If you are experiencing symptoms of an underbite, you may be curious to know what options are available for treatment. Our dental practice is proud to offer orthodontic treatments that can effectively address underbites and improve the appearance and functionality of your bite.

Treatment Options

Options for treating an underbite, include orthodontic appliances like braces or clear aligners, jaw surgery, or a combination of both. Our dental practice offers a full range of orthodontic services.  Our highly experienced team will work with you to develop a customised treatment plan to achieve the best results.

Braces for Underbite Correction

One common solution for correcting an underbite is orthodontic treatment with braces. This method slowly and gently repositions the teeth over time, allowing the bite to align correctly. In some cases, a combination of orthodontic treatment and jaw surgery may be necessary to achieve the best results.

Invisalign for Underbite Correction

Another option is the use of clear aligners, such as Invisalign. This innovative treatment uses custom-made, clear plastic trays to shift the teeth into their correct positions gradually. It is a discreet, convenient option for patients who want to correct their underbite without the noticeable metal wires and brackets of traditional braces.
