What are Protruding Teeth
Protruding teeth, also known as buck teeth or overbite, is a condition where the upper teeth are misaligned in a way that they might project a little farther than the lower ones. Some people have severe misalignment while others’ overbite might not be as noticeable. The biggest contributor in giving someone protruding teeth is genetics. You might get them because protruding teeth run in your family, or you may just be born with them because of your genetic makeup. However, other reasons that may cause your upper teeth to stick out include the vehement use of pacifiers in childhood or if you had a severe habit of sucking your thumb. Protruding teeth can be fixed through a variety of procedures.
Why are Protruding Teeth Fixed?
There are several reasons why people fix protruding teeth. However, most people want to fix them for cosmetic reasons, especially if the overbite is severe. Following are some other reasons why people go for protruding teeth treatments:
- To protect other teeth from being affected by protruding teeth
- To chew efficiently
- To avoid accidental tongue bites.
- To protect the gums
Treatments for Protruding Teeth
It is only through an orthodontist that you can get your teeth fixed. There are no home remedies to this process. Following are the treatments that you can opt for:
Braces are probably the most common treatment that is used to treat misaligned teeth. In order to treat protruding teeth, braces are traditionally used so that enough pressure is given to the teeth to be placed at a new, more aligned position. Adults or children both can equally benefit from these wired devices. They can solve the problem of overbite and make you smile more confidently.
Retainers are plastic made devices that are placed over the teeth to keep them straightened. Retainers are mostly used to avoid protruding teeth after braces have been taken off. Once the problem of overbite has been solved through braces, there is a chance that your teeth go back to the previous position. Therefore, retainers can be used. They can also be used without having to take braces, but all this will be decided by your orthodontist.
These are custom-made plastic aligners which are made through the mold of your teeth. Patients are supposed to wear Invisalign so that the position of their teeth can be changed. This is more popular with teenagers and adults rather than children. For children, dentists usually suggest the placement of braces. However, everything has to be decided by a qualified orthodontist. Therefore, you need to seek professional help if you also have protruding teeth and you want to have them aligned.
