Skeletal correction

Head-jaw
If you have an overbite caused by a significant discrepancy in lengths between the upper and lower jaw then rubber bands are unlikely to correct the problem; If the jaw size discrepancy is minor they may help. Rubber bands used during orthodontic treatment act as a force to move teeth only, not the jaws, so if your problem is derived from the jaws then moving the teeth may not an ideal solution.
