What are Under Bites?

Under Bites are when the lower jaw protrudes farther than the upper jaw, resulting in a “bulldog” look.  

How are Under Bites usually treated?

If the Under Bite is hereditary, then the patient will need to wait until his or her body stops growing (for men, it’s between ages 18-25 and for women, it’s between ages 18-21) in order to do jaw surgery. During the operation, the surgeon will slide the lower jaw backwards, pull the upper jaw forward, or a combination.  

MYOEFFECT AND UNDER BITES

Benefits of MyoEffect Treatment

The MyoEffect Treatment can fix the Under Bite if the lower jaw slides forward during biting. This procedure will work for early treatment in children ages 7 to 10. For patients ages 13+, the MyoEffect Treatment can minimize the appearance of the Under Bite if surgery isn’t wanted.
