A common problem of tooth alignment involves the overlap of the teeth in the front. This type of bite can be harmful to the anterior teeth over time. Without resolution, severe tooth wear can occur to the front teeth and can lead to chipped and sensitive teeth. This type of a bite can also be associated with TMJ symptoms. Deep anterior bites do not resolve over time but tend to worsen. With proper diagnosis and orthodontic treatment planning, Dr. Hintz can resolve this type of bite.
