What is Bite Problems?
When we bite down on anything, the teeth in our upper and lower jaws are expected to line up, or fit together, to deliver the right type of bite. But in some people, the teeth in upper and lower jaws are misaligned, so the teeth line never fits together. Dentists call abnormal bites like this “occlusion.” Occlusion could lead to trouble chewing, speech issues, smile aesthetic issues, or even wounds in the mouth. This condition is common and complete treatments are possible and available.
Bite problems are largely hereditary. Your genes mostly determine the shape of your jaw and how your teeth align. Some people inherit upper and lower jaws that are differently sized or teeth that are disproportionately sized that lead to misalignment and abnormal bite. Birth defects like cleft palate can also result in bite problems.
There are environmental and lifestyle issues that can factor in as well. Lost teeth or cracked teeth, bad habits like childhood thumb sucking, jaw fracture injuries, improperly fitted braces or retainers can also result in an abnormal bite.
Whatever the issue, our experts can fix bite problems so that your upper teeth perfectly overlay the bottom teeth.
Common Types of Bite ProblemsBite problems are categorized depending on the nature of the issue. Here are some of the most common types of bite problems our dentists are experienced in fixing:
Close your mouth. Do the upper front teeth, the molars, extend too far out over the lower front molars? If they do, then you have a bite problem known as an overbite. Overbite is unsightly, often referred to as having a “gummy” smile. It can result in protruding lips when the mouth is closed. Overbite leads to excessive wear of incisors, possibly needing fillings. What’s more, the lower teeth can bite into the roof of the upper jaw, resulting in wounds. Over bite should never be ignored.
