When a person's teeth or jaws do not fit together properly,
orthodontic treatment may be necessary to correct the problem. If
left untreated, these orthodontic problems, often referred to as
malocclusions, can cause speech difficulty, premature wear of the
teeth and protective enamel, and even increase the chance of injury
to the teeth and jaw joints.
An underbite is characterized by the lower jaw extending too far
out, causing the lower front teeth to sit in front of the upper
This malocclusion occurs when the upper teeth sit inside the lower
teeth, which may cause tooth stratification and misaligned jaw
growth. In order to close the mouth, patients usually move their
lower jaw forward or to the side when closing. This incorrect bite

Proper chewing is impacted by this type of bite, in which the upper
and lower front teeth do not overlap. Openbite may cause a number
of unwanted habits, such as tongue thrusting or thumb sucking. An
early evaluation and intervention is essential in correcting an
