Possible Health Issues Caused By An Overbite

25th / January / 2018

Too much space for your teeth, or too little, can cause what is known as an “overbite”. An overbite is not a major problem, although it can be embarrassing, but having one can have adverse effects on dental and physical health.

A dentist can advise you as to possible remedies for an overbite but some possible issues to be aware of include:

  • Tooth decay
  • Gum damage and inflammation
  • Jaw and facial pain

In many cases “braces alone can correct the problem” or your dentist can refer you to an orthodontist to fix an overbite. Further reading about overbites can be found at https://yourdentalhealthresource.com/top-oral-health-problems-caused-by-overbites/.
