Can ARCH Orthodontics Fix My Deep Bite?

closeup of beautiful womanHave you or your child been told that you have a deep bite by your ARCH orthodontist in Greater Boston? Are you wondering exactly what it is and how we can fix it? Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll break it down for you to help you make the right treatment decision for you and your family.

All The Details About Your Deep Bite

Most of the time when patients come to ARCH Orthodontics for braces or other orthodontic treatment in Greater Boston and Cape Cod, they’re just worried about getting their crooked teeth straight. But did you know that it’s just as important to address any bite issues too? The American Association of Orthodontics describes a deep bite as, “a malocclusion in which the upper front teeth excessively overlap the bottom front teeth when the back teeth are closed.” You might also hear your ARCH orthodontist describe a deep bite as an overbite or a closed bite.

Why Should I Fix My Deep Bite?

ARCH Orthodontics has offices in Orleans, Hyannis, Stoughton, Hyde Park, Westwood, Bridgewater, Brockton, Canton, and Randolph that are all equipped with talented orthodontists and state-of-the-art technology to help address all of your orthodontic needs. If your orthodontist diagnoses you with a deep bite or an overbite, we’ll most likely recommend you discuss treatment options to avoid:

  • Having your overlapping teeth wear down more rapidly due to consistent wear and grinding.
  • Overcrowding and excessive crookedness that could create an unhealthy oral health environment where teeth are subject to decay and deterioration.
  • The painful sores that can accompany misaligned teeth if you bite the back of your mouth frequently due to your deep bite.

Treatment Options for Your Deep Bite

Every smile is different, so you’ll need to see your ARCH orthodontist for a consultation so we can create a custom treatment plan just for you. Most of the time patients who are looking to correct a deep bite can do so with braces on both the upper and lower teeth. Invisalign at ARCH Orthodontics may also be a treatment option for you as well. Depending on your age and how far advanced your deep bite is, we can also create a unique removable appliance to help reduce wear on your teeth.

If you’re considering orthodontic treatment, we hope you’ll contact your neighborhood ARCH Orthodontics office.
