Lynn Dental Care Explains: Common Overbite Causes & Treatments
Lynn Dental Care understands that no one wants a crooked smile. In addition to cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as porcelain veneers, oral surgery, TMJ treatment, or dental crowns, Lynn Dental Care has multiple options to resolve your orthodontic concerns. Dr. Lynn is also an Invisalign dentist and will offer you the option to use this subtle route to realigning your teeth. At Lynn Dental Care, we are orthodontic experts, and today we would like to talk about overbite treatment. Overbites remain a large reason Dr. Lynn suggests orthodontics, and the causes and symptoms of overbites vary.
No one particular thing always determines the cause of your overbite. Some causes can include but are not limited to the following:
- Genetics: family genetics can explain an over-developed upper jaw relative to your lower, or can be behind an underdeveloped lower jaw
- Habits: thumb-sucking or pacifier usage can trigger overbites, needing teeth to be fixed and repositioned
- Upper teeth overcast lower teeth naturally: this could be the natural alignment of one’s teeth growth.
Habits and misappropriated alignment are easier to fix with orthodontic attention because less needs to be manipulated. Since no remodeling or guiding of the jaws is necessary, we can focus on manipulating the teeth when dealing with overbite adjustments. Genetics can necessitate more extensive orthodontic treatment since the jaws are either overdeveloped (upper jaw), or underdeveloped (lower jaw). Either situation requires jawlines to be guided and reconstructed.
Overbite Treatment by Lynn Dental Care
At Lynn Dental Care, we treat overbites, underbites, and all other teeth alignment issues. You can choose between Invisalign, braces, or full smile makeovers. You will find it difficult to find another Dallas cosmetic dentistry office that offers so many comprehensive options. We can reconstruct or makeover your teeth with a combination of oral surgery, porcelain veneers, and orthodontics. Both Invisalign and Fastbraces are also fantastic options for aligning your teeth.
If you are self-conscious about your smile and want to live your life without the hassle of metal in your mouth, then you need to speak with an Invisalign dentist. This option allows you to keep your teeth free of brackets and wires while still effectively straightening your teeth and adjusting your overbite.
Less bulky and more effective than traditional braces, Fastbraces straighten your teeth and correct your overbite much faster than traditional braces. You no longer need braces for years. Instead, let us give you Fastbraces. You’ll deal with fewer wires and metal than traditional braces, and you will get them off in half the time.
