Why Should You Consider Orthodontic Treatment for Your Deep Bite?
- Enhanced Function: Having a deep bite can affect your speech and chewing abilities. By correcting your bite, you can improve these functions.
- Prevent Dental Issues: A deep bite can result in problems like tissue and tooth trauma, along with possible complications of TMJ. By getting orthodontic treatment now, you can avoid problems in the future.
- Increased Comfort and Pain Reduction: If your bite is deep enough that your teeth touch your gums, you might find yourself in constant pain. Having an improper bite can also cause headaches and jaw pain that can all be corrected by orthodontics.
- Improved Aesthetics: A deep bite is sometimes called a “gummy smile” because you can see more of someone’s gums when they smile or speak. If you have a “gummy smile” and don’t love it, orthodontic treatment can move your teeth into position to be the main focus!
