Do I have Overbite?
If your top and bottom teeth overlap, you have an overbite. Overbite is common, and isn’t usually considered problematic. The problem arises when the overbite is too large or too small. In order to determine whether you have an overbite, just smile in the mirror with your jaw fully closed, and check whether you can clearly see 50% or more of your lower front teeth: if you can’t see 50% of your teeth, you may have an overbite and should see an orthodontist to figure it out.
Some of the symptoms include:
- Having trouble opening or closing your mouth fully
- Eating and chewing problems
- Jaw lock
- Jaw pops when you open or close your mouth
- Earaches that persist
- A headache
