Orthodontic Experts Reveal: What Is An Underbite?

An underbite, also known as a ‘class 3 malocclusion’, is a common orthodontic problem that affects many people. It occurs when the lower jaw protrudes forward in relation to the upper jaw, causing the lower teeth to sit in front of the upper teeth when the mouth is closed.

The severity of an underbite can vary from person to person, ranging from mild to severe. A mild underbite may present elements of crookedness and may cause a person to speak with a slight lisp. Severe underbites may cause severe difficulty in speaking, and in extreme cases, even difficulty in eating.

Regardless of the severity, it’s important to seek orthodontic treatment for underbites. At Orthodontic Experts, our orthodontists offer the expertise and the latest treatments for mild and severe underbites. Using innovative devices such as braces and Clear Aligners, our team of specialists can adjust the position of your teeth to eliminate the underbite and create a beautiful, healthy smile.

frequently asked questions

Is it hard to smile with underbite?

Absolutely! For many people, living with an underbite can make it difficult to feel confident about their physical appearance. An underbite results in the lower jaw protruding outwards and can impact the way a person smiles. The teeth may not line up the way you want, making it difficult to smile freely and confidently.
At Orthodontic Experts, we understand how having an underbite can make smiling awkward. That’s why we offer solutions to help. We employ a range of treatments, from corrective braces to aligners, to get your smile back on track.

Does underbite affect speech?

Yes, an underbite can cause speech impediments such as a lisp or slurring of words, which can be embarrassing and make it hard for people to communicate in some situations. At Orthodontic Experts, we are experienced in providing the ideal solutions for a range of speech impediments, including those caused by underbites. Our team will be able to provide advice and custom solutions to address any speech issues that may be caused by an underbite.

What happens if you don't correct an underbite?

It’s important to address an underbite as soon as possible, to avoid further complications in the future. If an underbite is left untreated, it can cause a range of issues, from physical pain and soreness of the jaw, to further speech impediments, and increased tooth decay and cavities. An underbite can also cause your gums to recede, which may also result in osteoarthritis of the jaw joint.

How long do underbites take to fix?

Depending on the severity of the underbite, and the types of treatment employed, it can take anywhere from 12-24 months to correct an underbite via braces or aligners. At Orthodontic Experts, we understand that this is a long period of time. That is why we ensure that we provide the best care available, from experienced and friendly orthodontists.
