more about underbite teeth

Is an underbite bad?

Not treating an underbite at the right time can have serious dental and oral consequences in the long run. It can trigger mouth breathing, bad breath, sleep apnea, or even temporomandibular joint disorder (TJD).

At what age should you correct an underbite?

Ideally, underbite should be corrected in early childhood (7 to 10 years) as the teeth and jaw areas are not fully developed. However, underbite in adults can also be corrected under the supervision of an orthodontist.

What are the causes of underbite?

An underbite is mostly hereditary. However, early childhood habits such as thumb or pacifier-sucking and tongue-thrusting can also result in an underbite.

How long does it take for underbite correction?

Underbite correction can take up to 1 or 2 years, or as suggested by your orthodontist after examining the severity of your misalignment.

What problems does underbite give?

An underbite can cause several dental, oral, and aesthetic concerns if not treated in early childhood. It can trigger bad breath, mouth breathing, speech issues, tooth decay, difficulties while chewing and biting, snoring, and more.

Does underbite worsen with age?

Yes, unfortunately. Ideally, an underbite should be treated in early childhood when the jaw and teeth areas are yet in the developing stage. Once developed, it leaves limited choices for correction in adult cases.

Is underbite correction painful?

An underbite correction may be slightly uncomfortable initially due to the pressured movement of the teeth and jaw. However, the discomfort will subside eventually.

What is the cost of underbite correction in India?

The cost of underbite correction in India can go up to 2 lakhs or more, depending on the severity or choice of treatment for correction.

What are the symptoms of underbite?

One of the most common symptoms of an underbite is a visibly-pronounced jaw. Other symptoms can be speech difficulties, mouth breathing, pain in the mouth or jaw areas, sleep apnea, and more.

Can underbite teeth relapse after treatment?

Yes, which is why an orthodontist would suggest retainers post-treatment to maintain stability and prevent relapse.
