Many individuals suffer from a condition commonly known as buck teeth. Often people will seek out cosmetic dentistry to correct their buck teeth which can provide many benefits for them.

From an aesthetic point of view, the correction of buck teeth allows for a straighter set of teeth with a more attractive smile. There are also some medical benefits of the correction of buck teeth, which often involve orthodontic surgery at a high-quality cosmetic hospital such as Vera Smile.

What Are Buck Teeth

Buck teeth, also known as “malocclusion” or an overbite is the misalignment of teeth, ranging from mild to severe. Many people are often unsure of the differences when it comes to an overbite vs. buck teeth, but they are largely the same thing.

Buck teeth are not a life threatening or especially dangerous condition to have, but there are a range of reasons that those inflicted with buck teeth choose to correct them. See our buck teeth before and after photos to see just exactly what the correction of buck teeth can look like following our award winning dental treatment plan.

A more severe is often tended to through dental treatment, but many do choose to correct their buck teeth for cosmetic reasons. Some complications can arise though. These can include:

  • Damage to other teeth
  • Gum damage
  • Damage to the tongue.

Depending on the severity of your buck teeth, the manner in which you should treat them will differ.

Are Buck Teeth Hereditary?

Quite often, buck teeth are hereditary. Factors such as jaw shape come into play here. If your parents or grandparents have a certain shaped jaw, just like their other physical features, it is likely this will be passed down to some of their descendants.

This could be due to an uneven or small upper or lower jaw that has been passed down to you. Although buck teeth are hereditary, there are also many other reasons you may have buck teeth.
