FAQ:  Open Bite


Question:
Edge to edge bite: I am an 18 year old male and finished orthodontic treatment by age 13 with extraction of 4 teeth.

Since then, my lower jaw grew and now my top and bottom teeth meet edge to edge with my molars not touching. How can I correct this bite problem? ...Visitor from NY

Answer:
The best resource for making the adjustments needed to shift your jaw into a more desireable position AND correct the open bite situation is a Prosthodontist (the "other" bite specialist.

If possible, try to find a Prosthodontist with 15+ years experience.
