An overbite is a dental condition where your front teeth extremely overlap your lower teeth. This is a common problem that can be easily corrected. The dental team at New Dental Images is professionally trained to treat even the worst overbite. Leaving this condition, untreated can cause excessive wear on your lower teeth and can also cause damage to the upper gums and palate. It may also cause problems with the structure of your teeth and overall gum line.
Having an underbite can be a serious issue that can appear unpleasant, but can also cause additional problems such as grinding teeth, speech impediments, poor tooth alignment, jaw pain, increased wear on teeth and increased gum disease or tooth decay. Your underbite may be caused by several different factors such as genetics, jawbone issues, thumb sucking, or bad chewing habits. Our team can provide the best underbite treatment in Elk Grove and Sacramento and straighten your teeth to produce the perfect smile.
We offer three general treatments options for overbites and underbites. A consultation with our professional and caring staff will help determine which treatment will work best as every situation and smile are different.
Invisalign is a popular treatment for straightening teeth without the use of metal braces. There are no complications in relation to the rubber bands or wires included with Invisalign. This is a modern system consisting of almost invisible, clear, plastic containers created to fit your mouth that you can wear over your teeth daily. Every two weeks, you will switch to a new set of aligners that will gradually adjust your teeth to perfection.
Traditional braces are also available for straightening your teeth and to improve the outline of your jaw. The most popular braces are metal and are commonly used to treat both adult and children’s teeth. Braces are worn from 6 months up to 2.5 years depending on how severely your teeth need to be corrected.
Retainers are another common treatment used for the adjustment of teeth. They are custom-made for your mouth so that you can wear them over time and they will gently apply consistent pressure to your teeth and help them stay in their proper place without risking damage. Retainers are easily removable and easy to maintain by cleaning with a toothbrush.
