My Orthodontist told me that I have a deep bite, what is it?

A deep bite occurs when the lower incisors bite too close or into the gum tissue behind the upper front teeth. This can lead to significant discomfort and contribute to excessive wear of the incisor teeth and/or gums. Your orthodontists can treat this problem effectively -especially in growing children, where continual growth can be used to advantage.
