Nothing But A
What Kind of Bite
Do You Have?
Three of the most common orthodontic concerns are overbites, underbites, and crossbites. An overbite is characterized by your top teeth overlapping with your bottom teeth, and an underbite is the opposite. A crossbite is when some of your top teeth rest inside your lower teeth. Most people have at least a slight overbite.
Health Risks Associated With Underbites/Overbites
Individuals with an overbite or underbite are more likely to develop moderate to severe enamel chipping and wear. An incorrect bite causes damage to tooth structure and can wear down the hard protective outer layer of teeth. This can result in tooth sensitivity, cavities and a future need for expensive dental work.

Severe underbites and overbites alter the position of the teeth and the tongue and may affect a child’s speech. In many cases, individuals with an underbite may talk with a lisp.
