OVERBITE (Class II malocclusion)
This is where the top front teeth bite ahead of the bottom front teeth and create excessive horizontal overbite (technically called “overjet”). This is the most common type of bite problem and can be either skeletal (jaw size mismatch) or dental (teeth tipped so as to produce overjet) in nature. Most often, it is a combination of the two main causes. Treatments are extremely varied and depend on the exact nature of the particular problem!
