Excess Overjet Causes and Treatment for Adults and Children
Overjet is the extent of horizontal distance between the upper and lower front teeth. Excessive overjet occurs when the upper front teeth are significantly further forward than the lower front teeth. Overjet is commonly confused with deep bite. Excessive overjet requires correction by an orthodontist.
Excess overjet is often the result of thumb sucking or overuse of pacifiers at a young age. It can also be the result of overcrowded teeth forcing the upper front teeth to push outward. An excess overjet greatly increases the risk of injuring the protruded upper front teeth. The misaligned teeth can make biting into food difficult or impossible. If the excess overjet is severe enough it may result in speech impediments. The lips may not fully close leaving an awkward appearance that may result in poor psychosocial health of the individual due to teasing. Excess overjet can usually be corrected with braces but surgery may be required in severe cases. CopeOrtho has advanced technology developed by orthodontist
Dr. Jason B. Cope which can correct an excess overjet often without the need for expensive and intrusive surgery. This technique uses the Unitek® Temporary Anchorage Device.
