In some cases the patients experience even jaw pain apart from the pain in other areas of the face. Moreover, in cases where the top teeth significantly overlaps the bottom teeth, patients also have been found experience aesthetic problems as well.

Aligners – Best solution for Overbite: Aligners are one of the most effective methods to correct mild to moderate overbite. Over the course of therapy with these aligners, constant pressure on the teeth is applied gradually and softly as a result of which the teeth move into their ideal position. Aligners also straighten the teeth during this treatment.
