Anterior bite or progeny is characterized by upper jaw body underdevelopment, protruding lower jaw and chin. Teeth overlap in reverse, that is, upper teeth overlap lower teeth. The signs of anterior bite are so conspicuous that it cannot be confused with any other pathology. Anterior bite is one of the most typical in orthodontic treatment, but it requires an orthodontist's outstanding abilities and a patient's willpower.
Patients, as well as a lot of doctors, believe that anterior occlusion can be treated only by undergoing a surgery, and that braces used independently will not bring results. Today we can safely say that in 90% of cases we can cure anterior bite without a surgery. That's right, no operation, only good braces and orthodontic magic. It's true that this treatment may not be easy, but the results will be impressive. If a patient is diagnosed with a hidden anterior bite, it means that the patient's organism will to some extent compensate for the pathological occlusion. Hidden anterior bite is not as typical, but is also difficult to treat orthodontically.
