Underbite

In an underbite, the bottom jaw sticks forward.

When the bottom front teeth bite in front of the top front teeth, this limits the forward growth of the top jaw, leading to a severely retrusive top jaw. If a person goes through puberty without treatment for an underbite, they are left with a very debilitating problem that will probably require surgery. To avoid this, we can treat children from the age of six or seven with a painless interceptive treatment that changes the relationship between top and bottom jaw.
