What is an overbite?
The measurements for the overbite and overjet can vary from person to person. It is often a unique situation that has been created in any individual. They can vary according to other aspects of your face like the size of your jawbones and teeth size, number and position. They can also vary due to certain long term and childhood habits that affect how your teeth erupt (grow into) in your mouth like thumb sucking or playing with the end of a pencil between your teeth.
Also, the “ideal” measurement range has been set as an average guiding parameter for dentists and is not definitive of any one case.
The most important thing is for your dentist to understand what anterior relationship you currently have and so better decisions can be made on how your teeth can be protected in the future.
Book a comprehensive examination and assessment with our leading dentists to discuss how to correct your overbite.

My dental plan included quite intrusive treatment, all of which was carried out with concern for my comfort. Time was taken to insure that I was included in every decision to be made.
Everyone was very friendly and made me feel 'at home'. Thanks to the dentists at this amazing practice!!
