orthodontic treatment west jordanThere are many types of malocclusion (misalignment of the teeth) that patients suffer from. An underbite is one of these conditions. An underbite is the type of malocclusion where your lower teeth sit in front of your upper teeth when your mouth is closed. Orthodontics can help treat this condition, but what types of braces will work? We have answers to your questions from our specialist for orthodontic treatment in West Jordan below.

What Is An Underbite?

An underbite can be caused by the lower jaw itself being too far forward, forcing your lower teeth to rest in front of your upper teeth. This pushes your jaw and chin out, affecting the way your face looks. If this type of underbite is severe, it generally requires some type of surgery.

Other cases have more of a root in malocclusion and can be corrected by altering the placement of your teeth with other types of orthodontic treatment.

What Problems Can An Underbite Cause?

The issue with any malocclusion is that it usually causes the teeth to grind against each other, leading to loss of enamel and a higher risk of tooth decay. This condition can cause other issues, including:

  • Problems with eating and talking
  • Premature wearing down of teeth
  • Pain
  • Dissatisfaction with facial/jaw structure

How Is An Underbite Treated?

Treatment depends on the cause and severity of the underbite. Braces have been traditionally used in combination with any necessary surgery. However, with modern orthodontics, Invisalign® can be used to treat types of malocclusion in place of metal braces, including underbites! The benefits of Invisalign are many:

  • Clear, virtually invisible trays
  • Removable, allowing you to continue to enjoy your favorite foods
  • Quick treatment times
  • No brackets, wires, or tightening

Invisalign is a great discreet option to treat your underbite. Ask our orthodontist today!
