Dr. Michael Stosich, a Kenilworth orthodontist warns parents to correct overjet in children to prevent trauma.GRAYSLAKE AND KENILWORTH, ILLINOIS – Our desire here at iDentity Orthodontics is for every child to have a healthy, beautiful smile composed of beautifully aligned teeth and a proper bite that promotes lifetime oral health.

If your child has significant overjet that goes uncorrected, a 2013 study shows – again – the likelihood of this being the case is slim without interceptive orthodontic treatment.

Overjet is the term used to describe the condition where the front teeth in the upper jaw advance well in front of the lower jaw’s front teeth, says Dr. Michael Stosich, a Grayslake and Kenilworth orthodontist. You probably have heard people use the term “buck teeth,” which is a common way of referring to overjet.
