In our blog this week, we are here to teach you about the different types of bite patterns and why they are important. I am sure that you have heard the words overbite or underbite before, but do you know what these words mean? Do you know what type of bite is considered normal? Here At Ponte Vedra Complete Dentistry, we are devoted to patient education and one of the ways that we constantly teach our patients about all things dentistry is with our weekly blogs. According to the American Dental Association, abnormal bites usually become noticeable between the ages of 6 and 12, once the adult teeth begin to erupt. Often times, it is best to treat these abnormal bites when children are between the ages of 8 and 14 and still growing. It is never too late, however, to fix a bad bite and the results of treatment could drastically improve your quality of life.
