What the Ideal Bite Looks Like
You have a healthy bite, that means that your top teeth only slightly cover your bottom teeth. Your molars are aligned in a way that they comfortably lay in place. The ideal teeth bite is comfortable, attractive, and painless.
Anything outside of this parameter would likely be considered a bad bite. If you are unsure whether or not you have a bite that is considered to be bad, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us. We can see you for a free consultation.
You will need a thorough exam to diagnose an issue with your bite as well as the treatment that would be needed to fix this issue.
How to Tell if Your Bite is Bad
There are many things that can get in the way of you have the ideal teeth bite. You may have different sized jawbones. Your upper jaw may be bigger than your lower jaw and vise versa. Sometimes this is something that gets passed down genetically.
Bad habits from when you were young can have an impact on your dental health. If you were someone who used a pacifier for too long, sucked your thumb or have a tongue thrust, that could be a reason why you have a bad bite.
There are a lot of reasons why your alignment may need adjustments. If you are worried about your bite, please keep reading. We would love to help you get the treatment you need.
What Treatments Can Fix a Bad Bite
There are a few ways in which you can achieve the ideal teeth bite. One option you may have includes wearing braces. This is an often opted for method. It involves realigning teeth to refit your bite.
We may need to remove some teeth in over to fix your bite if overcrowding is the reason why your bite is bad. Another option that does not involve braces includes changing the teeth by adding bonding or reshaping them in order for your teeth to fit together better.
Lastly, in severe cases, dentofacial surgery may be required. This is typically when there is a problem with the jawbone itself.
