A deep overbite is a malocclusion that is recognized by an excessive degree of overlap of the upper and lower teeth. Although some overbites are hereditary, others are caused by a malformed jaw. Jaws grow unevenly under the pressure of certain habits when a child is young, resulting in an underdeveloped lower jaw or an overdeveloped upper jaw. Habits formed during early childhood, for example – such as thumb-sucking, prolonged bottle-feeding or tongue-thrusting – can cause this overbite. And habits developed later in life, such as eraserhead-chewing or nail-biting, can form an overbite as well.
