Underbites are when the lower jaw protrudes beyond the upper jaw. This can be caused by malformations in the jawbone. Severe cases can have harmful effects and generally underbites are not considered aesthetically pleasing.
Orthodontic conditions such as overbites and overjets should be treated early in life before it becomes too difficult to reverse them.
Parrish Orthodontics provides surgical orthodontics services. Also known as orthognathic surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery is one of the nine recognized dental specialities focused on treating complex craniofacial cases involving the mouth, jaw, face and skull.
