Doctors for Underbite in Pandalam, Kochi
ratings and reviews)
Underbite is a dental disorder in which the set of teeth are not in alignment. Typically, the lower jaw protrudes out beyond the upper one. Besides being a cosmetic issue, Underbite can create difficulties while chewing and speaking. Some of these could lead to other serious dental issues. Some of the causes include genetic and race related ones. There are cases where childhood habits could be the reason.
HOW IS UNDERBITE DIAGNOSED?
A dentist would examine the teeth of the child in this reference and also do an X-ray to check for the inclination.
HOW IS UNDERBITE TREATED?
There are two common treatments for underbite:
• An upper jaw expander, which is a wire device fixed to the roof of the mouth. A key is used nightly to widen the expander until treatment is completed. This process typically takes about one year when the expander is replaced with a retainer.
• A reverse pull face mask, works by wrapping around the head and attaching to metal bands on the upper back teeth to pull the upper jaw into the correct position.
DID YOU KNOW?
In mild cases, a new method of cosmetic dentistry is used to reshape the lower teeth and then fit veneers to the uppers. Facelift Dentistry suggests this makes it possible for the lower teeth to close behind the uppers, and avoids the need for surgery or wearable appliances. ""Facelift"" technology doesn't physically resolve the problem, but it makes it less visible and sufficiently improves the jaw's functionality.
