Hi Dr Moore. I’m looking for some advice. I’ve recently visited my local dentist because I had pain in my front teeth and my jaw aches often. The dentist said its because I have an “overbite”. Whenever my bottom teeth touch my front it causes pain. The roof of my mouth has also started being very tender when I touch it with my tongue. She said the only way to sort it out is to have braces; that will cost 1900+. I can’t afford this as I’m on benefits. What else could I do? Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi, I was wondering if I sent you my dental X-ray, whether you could tell me if my overbite can be corrected? I have a deep overbite and I was wondering if it could be corrected in any way at all? With or without surgery. I just do not like having the overbite and I also lost a tooth and the filling came out of the same tooth because of it. I had a root canal years ago and had a crown and post put in and then that came out maybe because of my overbite as my bottom teeth were pushing right up towards it. I hope you can offer suggestions to help me fix my overbite problems.
I chipped my front tooth that had composite bonding. I was told to get 8 veneers. I have a slight overbite. I already had the prep work done and am on my 2nd dentist. I have the temporaries and there is a large space between the back of my top teeth and the front of my bottom teeth. You can stick your fingernail under them. I have been doing research online and saw if you have an overbite the veneers will look bulky. Is it too late to get composite bonding so I won’t have to worry?
Hello, what I would like to inform you is that I have slightly prominent teeth with an overbite that is off-centre to the right of my mouth and I would like this corrected so that my teeth would not be prominent and also in-line with my bottom row, this is quite a disconcerting problem for me at this time. I would be open to all available options and opinions but I’d also like to state that my two front teeth at the top are crowns and are also very long, and this is also something which bothers me. Is there anyway that these problems could be rectified and what exactly would the treatment involve?
Thank You and Kind Regards.
Hi, my daughter is currently wearing braces and her bottom lip is overriding on to her top lip. She has braces on both her top and bottom sets of teeth. Her bottom jaw is bigger than her maxilla (this was caused by an accident when she fell onto her teeth on a step when she was two years old). Can we do something to make this less prominent by moving the teeth forward a bit? She has been wearing braces for 18 months now …
Hi there, I wondered if you could help me? I have a mild overjet ( I think about 3mm) and an overbite ( only a few mm of my lower teeth show when I bite down.) I think my overbite is partly down to my front teeth being relatively long.
I do believe that I have nice teeth otherwise. They are quite straight etc and I do take good care of them.
I would like to know if I could improve this with veneers/ crowns/ overlaying veneers over my teeth. I know it wouldn’t correct it completely. I would also like to widen my smile, which I know can be helped with veneers or is there anything else you can suggest that I can maybe have a little look into? Thank you for your advice in advance.
Hello i ve been searching the internet for other options on jaw alignment. When i went through my treatment with the orthodontist to straighten my teeth they told me that my bottom jaw was about 1 cm behind my top jaw causing a very noticable overbite which i am not happy with and is affecting my confidence. They told me about this and said easiest and quickest way to fix this was to have fixed braces top and bottom to align my teeth and then after have my bottom jaw broken and moved forward. I really want to sort this problem out but i dont like the idea of this option and hope you know of any other options that could possibly work for me. I think i would get what ever treatment free because im only 17 and still get free NHS treatment until 18 or 19.
Cheers any advice will be great.
I have an overbite but it’s like quite severe. My bottom teeth are straight and my top teeth are pretty much straight aswel. I have trouble with eating and speaking normally sometimes and since I am a teenager it is starting to put a real downer on my social life as I’m sure you can imagine. My confidence is getting knocked everytime I look in the mirror so I guess you could call it a severe problem for me. Since beginning to look at my options I have become slightly confused. I have been to a consultant and he said that the only option is to break my jaw but it will take a couple of years, I am 15, 16 in may. He also said that I would need braces first for about a year.
I was just wondering if it was possible to do this without having braces and just break my jaw? Also how long this procedure would take and how much it would cost? Thanks
Hello Doctor Safeer Butt, I had 4 teeth extracted and my front teeth pushed back when I was younger to correct an overbite that I had. However, unfortunately, ,my teeth have been pushed too far back in my mouth and now they are hardly visible when I smile. In addition to this, the position of my teeth has made my profile not the best looking as it makes my chin way more prominent. Its really upsetting and effecting my self confidence. My question is, is it possible to reverse this and bring the teeth forward using implants and pushing the teeth back forward. I have been to visit my orthodontis about bringing the teeth forward about10 years ago who just said it was not possible to move the teeth back.
