How to Overcome your Overjet & Overbite

When improper alignment of the molars leads the lower front teeth to sit too far behind the upper front teeth, the malocclusion is known as “overjet.” Protruding upper teeth are commonly associated with a lower jaw that is deficient or underdeveloped in proportion to the upper jaw. This condition is technically known as excessive overjet and is popularly known as “buck teeth.” This type of malocclusion may develop for a variety of reasons, ranging from crowded teeth that push the top incisors forward, to habits such as thumb-sucking or pacifiers. In addition, the abnormal swallowing habit known as “tongue-thrusting” can exacerbate the condition.

This featured case, by our very own Co-founder and Chief Scientist Dr. Sue. S. Lee, prevented surgery and headgear with her patented appliance the SLDA as the first phase of treatment, followed by braces.
