As an adult, is overbite correction or underbite correction right for me?
Bite correction can be a time consuming and sometimes painful process. Because of this, many adults have learned to live with their alignment problems not having the time or patience for a two year correction program. Many adult patients are still unaware that there is no time limit on correcting misalignment of the bite, mistakenly thinking that correction can only be successful during the youthful growth period.
Dr. Maddahi has seen a surge in adult patients coming to him for solutions for overbite correction and underbite correction. In fact, one in five orthodontic correction patients are adults wishing to correct a lifetime of crooked or misaligned teeth. The good news for his adult patients is that the teeth can be moved at any time in life and while teeth move more readily in a child, adults can finally get the smile and performance they have wished for all of their lives.
