The underbite is a malocclusion when the teeth of the lower jaw protrude and partially or almost completely overlap the upper teeth (usually the front teeth). This can be caused by teeth deformities, or a discrepancy in growth between the upper and lower jaws. As well as resulting in a less-than-ideal smile.

The underbite can cause many problems chewing and increase one’s chances of developing gum disease. In some cases, the stress on the jaw due to the underbite will result in severe muscle and joint pain that will require surgery to fix.
