Collapsed Overbite Caused By Missing Teeth Video

 

This is a GREAT example on how missing back teeth cause the entire bite to collapse. This is my patient I am treating. These are digital 3D scan models that I made in the office.

Rather than the teeth interdigitating with each other they are passing by each other more like pair of scissors. The lack of back teeth has created a very deep overbite. This causes the upper front teeth to stick out more over the years.

Because of the collapse the lower front teeth bite on the gums behind the upper front teeth!! That hurts!!

Often times if the teeth are really bad, full extraction and Prettau all on x dental implant bridges or dentures are the only way to remedy this. Other options would include braces and jaw surgery if the teeth are still good.

The point is not to let things get this bad. If some of the back to you would’ve been replaced earlier on, just likely would not have happened.

These are difficult dental implant cases because of the severe overbite. The new bridges have to be made sometimes with a thick palate. It requires a lot of very special design and testing with temporary full implant bridges.

These are not simple all on four procedures. This would be considered a very difficult case.
