Adult underbite: I have upper and lower dentures. What is the procedure or service to correct an Underbite? ...Visitor from Lafayette
It is difficult, if not impossible to correct an underbite with denture treatments. Dentures are designed to rest on the "bony ridge" where your teeth once were.
Underbites are more commonly corrected with orthodontic appliances or orthognathic surgery.
The best resource for determining what can be done to improve your occlusion if total correction isn't possible, is a Prosthodonist with 15+ years experience.
