FAQ:  Open Bite


Question:
I sucked my thumb as a child, and therefore have an overbite. When I bite, my molars touch, but the front teeth do not. I'm 29 now. Can my teeth be repaired? ...Visitor from IL

Answer:
It's not easy to correct your open bite case. Not only will it take longer, but your stabilization is not a guarantee. Try to find an orthodontist that is close by so you decrease the commute since you will have many visits. Seven is the magical age to make sure your kid stops thumb sucking or tongue thrust habits.
