Vertical bite defects – Deep bite

The deep bite is classified as vertical bite defects. This is a defect that is characterized by excessive vertical bite, which means that the upper teeth overlap on the lower teeth more than it does in patients with normal teeth. The vertical bite can be so deep that the upper teeth, instead of only contacting the opposing teeth, contact the gums, which can lead to serious periodontological problems.

This defect is characterized by excessive deviation of the seed teeth. In the mandible due to lack of contact with opposing teeth, there is excessive tearing of the front teeth of the lower. An additional adverse symptom of this defect is the formation of aneso-poster separ. There is a group of patients who have so-called "Sunday Bite" from English Sunday smile. These are patients who have two bites – one that is dictated by the bite conditions and the other "learned". The learned bite allows patients to camouflage the defect in photos or on other occasions. It is very important that before orthodontic treatment, the doctor correctly diagnosed the existing defect, since failure to diagnose "double bite" can lead to prolongation of treatment or even prevent proper termination.

Deep bite – occurrence

Excessive vertical bite can accompany any weight. The slight and moderate form of deep bite very slightly affectthe features of the patient's face, only a large severity of the disorder can worsen the external appearance. Most often, deep bite meets in second-class orthodontic defects by. Angle'a

We talk about this cavity when the front teeth compensate for Angle's second class by tilting towards the palate. The in-depth bite is caused by excessive over-expression of the upper teeth. Often the front teeth in the lower arch also undergo supereruption (excessive rupture). To correct irregularities in the alignment of the teeth, intrusion of the upper and lower teeth is necessary, which, unfortunately, often prolongs the treatment. This type of defect sometimes requires tooth extraction or surgery to fully restore the aesthetics and function of the stomatognathic system. Usually, however, it is enough to use orthodontic mini-implants to disseminate teeth in the lateral segment and thus create a place for tooth correction in the anterior segment.

Treatment strategies

There are many strategies for treating deep bites. Methods of treatment of excessive vertical bite include:

  1. Tooth intruder in the anxinersection
  2. Increase in dental and uphearial height in the rear section
  3. Reduce vertical bite by swatheof the upper teeth

Tooth intruder in the anxinersection

Tooth intruder is a good way to eliminate excessive vertical bites used in adolescent and adult patients. Intrusicity of the upper or lower teeth is considered a stable method of correcting this type of orthodontic defect. This method of treatment involves providing strength that is designed to push the teeth into the bone. The decision to push the upper or lower arc should be taken on the basis of aesthetic considerations. If the position of the upper lip at rest causes excessive exposure of the gums, it is advisable to push the teeth in the upper arch. The exposure of the seed teeth is getting smaller with age, so the treatment of orthodontist should take into account aesthetic conditions when tinking.

Increase in dental and uphearial height in the rear section

Eliminating deep biteby increasing the height of the back tooth section seems like a very good strategy. The above procedure not only improves the bite, but also favorably affects facial features. Unfortunately, the size of chewing forces makes the extruding of the hind teeth a high tendency to relapse. The method of increasing the altitude of the dental and upular segment may be used in patients in the early development period. The extrusion of the hind teeth in adults is considered unstable.

Reduce vertical bite by tooth swathe

Tooth swath is a very efficient and easy way to treat deep bite. This is a technique that can be useful when correcting excessive bite in patients who, in addition to deep bite, also show an impromptu tilt of the sieve teeth. Treatment in the above way orthodontate must always carry out with extraordinary precision, because tooth tilting is qualified for dental movements with low stability.
