Maintaining good oral health is essential as you grow older. You only have one set of natural teeth, and you want them to last as long as possible. Orthodontists understand that need and can help you improve the health of your teeth.
Dr. Chaw-Su Kyi specialises in treating a variety of dental conditions, including overbites. As the 2020 Specialist Orthodontist of the Year, Dr. Kyi has extensive experience in providing overbite treatment in London.
When you close your teeth together and your top front teeth extend past your front bottom teeth, this is an overbite. An overbite is a sign that you have misaligned teeth and may require professional treatment such as Invisalign.

In this case, surgical treatment is sometimes required to align the jaw with the teeth. A dental overbite implies that the teeth are the problem. In this case, the teeth need to be straightened and aligned properly.
If you are curious about overbite treatment in London, it is important to note that it will not correct itself. As time goes on, the overbite is likely to get worse rather than stay the same. Possible overbite treatments include:
