Will Dentures Fix My Overbite?
Yes, dentures can fix minor overbites but more invasive techniques may be necessary if you have a severe overbite. This is because dentures are placed on the ridges in your mouth where your natural teeth used to be, limiting the amount of overbite or underbite correction your dentist can perform. And overcorrecting the bite can actually make your face appear awkward and disproportionate.
If your teeth don’t match-up exactly when you bite down, it’s just the way your jaw naturally aligns. Slight overbites are very common, most of us have them. If you want your overbite corrected prior to having your dentures designed, talk with your dentist. They’ll diagnose the cause and recommend solutions.Back to Will Dentures Make Me Look Different?
