Your orthodontist may recommend various misaligned teeth treatments. These can include:

  • Braces to correct the position of the teeth
  • Removal of teeth to correct overcrowding
  • Reshaping, bonding, or capping of teeth
  • surgery to reshape or shorten the jaw
  • wires or plates to stabilize the jaw bone
In severe malocclusion, the patient faces trouble to eat and speak.

A frequent option for the correction of excess overjet is to shorten the maxillary arch in the overjet teeth treatment. This can be used when the patient has a mandibular deficiency. Orthodontics and orthognathic surgery: For patients whose excess overjet is due to a defect in mandibular development, this option is often the ideal choice acts such as cleft lip and palate may also be reasons for a malocclusion.
