The alignment of your teeth is known as occlusion. While there should be a slight overlap of about 1-2 millimeters between your top and bottom teeth, whenever there’s a larger than normal gap it causes malocclusion. This misalignment issue, also known as an overbite, can make daily tasks like eating and speaking difficult.
Here at Owens Orthodontics, we offer overbite correction to help you achieve a confident, beautiful smile and improve your oral health.

At Owens Orthodontics, we believe every patient is unique, and we are committed to delivering a personalized approach and custom treatment plan.
Depending on your needs and goals, we have several overbite treatments available. The most popular option is braces and retainers.
