A 28-year-old male asked:

Underbite: An underbite can be a combination of underlying causes. The typical underbite is usually caused by the lower jaw growing at a faster forward rate than the upper jaw, or the upper jaw not growing as fast as the lower jaw, or a combination of the two. Also, there could be a 'dental' underbite caused by the bottom teeth being ahead of the top teeth with jaws growing normally.

Underbite surgery: An underbite surgery can improve the relationship between your upper and lower teeth thus allowing you to better chew if you had challenges to begin with prior to surgery. Best to discuss what to expect after your surgery with your orthodontist.

First visit: Every new patient initial orthodontic visit varies from office to office. Some offices will take initial panoramic x-rays, but most will take a look at your teeth and jaws and see how they are related to each other upon biting down or closing down your teeth. Best to contact the office to determine what to expect.
