My teeth are straight, but I have an overbite or underbite, do I need braces?
There is a correct way for your teeth to sit within your mouth. When your front teeth sit over the top of your bottom teeth, this is called an overbite. When your bottom teeth jut out in front of your top teeth, this is known as an underbite. Having an overbite or and underbite can cause jaw pain, and can cause the teeth to wear, as the top teeth and bottom teeth rub against each other. Even though your teeth are straight, you can still have an underbite or overbite. Either way your orthodontist can help you find the right solution for your circumstance.
Are There Alternatives to Traditional Braces?
When it comes to alternatives to traditional braces, it all depends on the severity of your case and the strength of your teeth and jaw. There are other options that your orthodontist can walk you through. These other options include lingual braces and clear aligners.
