Grayslake, IL – A beautiful smile is a valuable tool – it not only boosts your self-esteem, but it also projects kindness and confidence to those around you. If you have a malocclusion, you may feel self-conscious about your smile and try to hide it. But orthodontic treatment is here to help you achieve the smile of your dreams, no matter what type of malocclusion you may have.
“Overjets, sometimes referred to as buck teeth, occur when the upper teeth protrude outward and sit over the bottom teeth at an angle,” says Dr. Michael Stosich, an orthodontist in Round Lake area. “An overjet can make it difficult to chew and bite properly, close your lips all the way, and speak properly. Some people with overjets also frequently bite into the insides of their cheeks or their tongue.”
