Is your overbite aging you prematurely? Is it causing headaches or facial pain?
What causes overbites?
- The most common cause is an abnormal growth pattern. This simply means that either the upper jaw (the maxilla) has grown larger than normal or the lower jaw (the mandible) has not developed sufficiently.
- Another cause could be teeth eruption (orthodontic) issues. This means that something has kept the teeth in the lower jaw back, or the upper teeth have come too far forward.
- Overbite is also caused by a combination of these factors. This means that someone is genetically predisposed to a shorter lower jaw and they also have other contributing factors. These are complex cases and are treated after careful evaluation – no shotgun approach for these cases!
