What is an overbite?
If when you look at yourself in the mirror and simulate the bite, you notice that your upper teeth cover part or all of the lower teeth, or the advanced or protruding notes, you are in the presence of an overbite.
Overbite is more common than you might think, is often associated with a Class II malocclusion and can be easily treated with Clearfy's clear aligners.
Possible causes for having an overbite.
It can be associated with dissimilar causes, among which are hereditary factors, since many times there are relatives who suffered this malocclusion. Other factors are:
Skeletal nonconformities:: problems in the size of the jaws.
Dental nonconformities: alterations in the size of the teeth in relation to the jawbone.
Functional alterations: the existence or not of harmful habits.
On the other hand, there are social or environmental factors, such as thumb sucking or excessive use of the bottle or teat, even by putting the tongue between the teeth.
What health consequences can an overbite cause?
The overbite can cause cases of dental crowding in both the incisors and the upper canines, and with this, a greater probability of cavities, since brushing is difficult.
It also increases the possibility of suffering from bruxism and tooth wear, and increases the probability of suffering from periodontal disease.
This orthodontic treatment consists of using transparent aligners to correct your teeth. It consists of a set of aligners made up of pairs (upper and lower), which must be worn for 22 hours a day, providing coverage to feed and brush the mouth correctly.
The duration of overbite treatment ranges from 5 to 12 months, depending on the condition of each patient and their discipline.
