We are referring to deep overbite when the vertical overlap of the teeth occurs. The lower front teeth bite too far up behind the upper front teeth into palate. The distance between the upper and lower arch is more than 1-1,5 mm. This phenomenon can easily be examined by you when looking in the mirror. There are different volumes of deep bite, but the bigger the distance the more serious the problem. So we need to look for solutions and the reasons are more anatomical than aesthetic.
The effective orthodontic management of deep overbite is subject to its complexity. To achieve good result one may need other specialists such as massage-therapist, manual therapist or speech therapist.
The secret of a successful treatment is to discover and to start treating the problem as soon as possible with an orthodontist. This way the symptoms become less prominent and the treatment procedures less stressful.
By doing so we not only make our younger year easier but thinking about the future we can also prevent chronical dental and joint-related issues of older ages.
