Deep Bite (Overbite)

Excessive vertical overlap of upper front teeth over lower front teeth.

Overbite should be detected and corrected at an early age as it can cause:

  • abnormal and excessive irreversible teeth attrition or wear
  • traumatic gum loss (gum recession)
  • reduced face height and ‘overclosed’ profile.
