How Is an Overbite Treated?

Early intervention is important to prevent the overbite from deepening and possible complications. Braces and clear aligners can be used to correct an overbite. Each of these tools has its own advantages and disadvantages, so you will have to discuss what would be best for your condition and personal preferences. Treatments are available for symptoms related to an overbite, too. For example, significant temporomandibular joint pain can be alleviated with splint therapy that repositions the lower jaw to relieve pressure on the nerves and blood vessels in the area.
