DEEP BITE TREATMENT
Deep Bite Causes and Treatment for Adults and Children
A deep bite (often refered to as an over bite) is defined by the amount of vertical overlap of the upper front teeth over the bottom front teeth where the upper front teeth cover too much of the lower front teeth. Excessive overbite requires correction by an orthodontist. A deep over bite is commonly confused with excessive overjet.
Deep bites can negatively impact jaw and teeth function and are often difficult to effectively clean. The lower front teeth may bite into the gum tissue on the roof of the mouth in a deep bite case. Also, chewing and biting can be difficult because the jaw cannot function normally. Lastly, the lips do not fit properly and may appear misshapen causing an unbalanced profile. Deep bites can be effectively corrected with braces.
