What is overbite surgery treatment?
Overbite is a maxillofacial disease that often occurs in many people, the upper jawbone is overdeveloped, causing the teeth to protrude outward or forward, making it difficult for the mouth to close.
The overbite condition can be easily seen, which can directly affect facial aesthetics. The length of the jawbone is not proportional to the overall face size, it also affects the chewing function as well as social communication.
Depending on the severity of the overbite, the degree of impact on people is more or less.
If the jaw is slightly protruding, the jawbone protrudes less than 1cm forward, the chewing function of the jaw is not affected but the facial appearance is not well-balanced and harmonious.
If the jaw is moderately protruding, the jawbone protrudes about 1-2cm forward, the chewing function of the jaw is slightly affected and affects the proportion of the face.
If the jaw is severely protruding, the jawbone protrudes more than 2cm forward, the chewing function and the facial appearance are heavily affected.
The causes of overbite
Whether the impact of overbite is severe or mild, it often comes from causes as follows:
- Congenital due to genetic inheritance from the previous generation, right from birth, the jaw was protruded.
- Due to trauma and accidents, which damage the jawbone and cause the jawbone to protrude forward.
- Due to the bad habits over a long time such as pushing tongue, biting lips, biting hard objects… causing the teeth to protrude.
