Do you have to wear braces to have surgery to correct an overbite?

Overbite fix

Overbite
Most orthognathic cases are a combination of braces and surgery of the jaws. Orthodontics are needed to set up your teeth into the proper place/relationship and then surgery is used to rearrange the bones of the face to get the best result. Check with your orthodontist for the best options to correct your overbite. Also consult with a oral and maxillofacial surgeon.

How long will it take for braces with rubber bands to correct a 100% overbite?

Varies

Time to correct an overbite varies according to the severity of the problem, patient cooperation, and growth. It also depends on what else is being corrected simultaneously with the overbite correction. Ask an Orthodontist to examine you and give you a time estimate.

Dr. G J. Funari answered:

How can I have a severe overbite corrected? My top teeth completely cover my bottom teeth, and I have a severe overbite of 9 mm. I've been told that braces alone might not be able to fix this. What else is there that I could do? .

Many

Many times a patient's poor bite is due to misalignment or mismatched sizes of the jaws. An orthodontist can only move teeth where bone exists. If an attempt is made to violate this rule it creates a situation where the teeth may relapse to their previous position. For that reason many patients require jaw repositioning surgery (orthognathic surgery) to reposition the jaws more favorably so that the orthodontist can create a beautiful functional bite. As part of the work-up of your case the orthodontist will evaluate the size and position of your jaws to determine if surgery is potentially required. If this is the case the orthodontist will begin to move the teeth to an ideal position where he anticipates the bone will be after the surgery. This initially could make your bite worse until the surgery is completed. After the surgery is finished and you have healed, there will be a period of finishing orthodontics to establish the final result.

Can I get braces for my overbite?

Overbite

Open-uri20130401-26026-1pr3vyo
In layman's terms, an "overbite" typically refers to the upper front teeth sticking out horizontally, further than the lower front teeth. An orthodontist defines an "overbite" as the vertical overlap of the upper front teeth over the lower front teeth. Get an opinion from an orthodontic specialist regarding the best option (it depends highly on the severity of your own problem).

A slight overbite is normal, and is the result that most orthodontist attempt to achieve. The upper teeth usually have the lower teeth residing "inside" them, and is considered best for function. Braces can correct an overbite if the bite (occlusion) is not allowing a patient to chew properly or if esthetically the smile is affected.

How can you fix an overbite without braces?

Depends

Dental
If the overbite is mild, yes you can. However, if it is very severe, often braces is the best non surgical method of treating an overbite. Surgery is another option to fix an overbite.

Dr. Sandra Eleczko answered:

Can getting lingual braces affect your overbite?

Yes

Lingual
The goal of all braces is too optimize your bite, both cosmetically and functionally. Lingual braces is one option used so that the brackets and wires are not visible, but there are some limitations with this system. Talk to an orthodontist about to answer your questions and find out what will work best for your particular mouth.
