When your upper front teeth stick out past your lower front teeth, you have an overbite (also called a deep bite). For most people with overbites, their upper front teeth don’t touch their lower front teeth, and others may not be able to see their lower front teeth.
Overbites happen when your upper jaw grows too much, or your upper front teeth are positioned so that they angle out. Often, the lower jaw may not have grown enough.

It’s important to fix an overbite as soon as possible, because it can cause several problems:

Overbites can be corrected using orthodontic braces that move the front teeth back and bring the lower jaw forward to create proper alignment.
