Overbite is what occurs when your upper front teeth overlap with your lower front teeth. It is a frequent condition that is present in most people to a certain degree. However, sometimes overbite can be too large, leading to other oral and dental problems.
When we have a missing a tooth or teeth it is often desirable to replace the missing teeth rather than leave a space. There are several ways to replace missing teeth, one of these is a dental bridge. A dental bridge is a false tooth which is attached to one or both teeth either side of the gap, these are called abutment teeth. Bridges, as opposed to dentures, are a fixed solution to close the space and so are not able to be removed at home. They offer this without surgery which is required if you are going to replace the teeth with implants.
