Correction of reverse bite

Starting from


In cases of reverse bite, the upper or lower jaw is positioned irregularly, which can lead to various undesired effects. Specifically, the upper teeth are positioned behind the lower teeth, which hampers normal speech and chewing function while distorting facial appearance. Additionally, this type of bite increases the risk of excessive tooth wear and potential tooth fractures. Our primary objective in achieving a proper and functional smile is to ensure that the upper teeth are positioned in front of the lower teeth during the bite. This will result in harmony between the lower and upper teeth.

This particular bite issue can be successfully corrected using all types of modern fixed braces, with self-ligating braces being particularly recommended.

Deep bite correction can be achieved with the following orthodontic braces:

  • Traditional metal braces,
  • Traditional clear braces,
  • Self-ligating metal braces,
  • Self-ligating clear braces,
  • Invisible Invisalign aligners.


The treatment is suitable for individuals aged 12 and above who have aesthetic and functional concerns related to their deep bite.


Prior to the placement of braces, patients will undergo a panoramic jaw X-ray at the orthodontic clinic. A detailed examination of the bone structure will help us determine the most suitable treatment plan based on the chosen type of braces.


The placement of braces is a painless procedure that typically takes approximately 30 minutes, regardless of the type of fixed braces chosen. The average duration of the treatment varies between 12 and 18 months, depending on the specific type of braces chosen. Following the placement of braces, regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to closely monitor the progress and course of the treatment. The orthodontic clinic stands out for its unique approach to follow-up appointments, providing an ideal time interval for each visit. Due to our extensive experience and track record of successful treatments, we have optimized our scheduling to offer follow-up visits every 6 to 8 weeks. This approach significantly saves time for all our patients. Upon completion of the treatment, patients will receive retention aligners at no additional cost.


The ultimate goal of the treatment is to achieve a harmonious relationship between the upper and lower jaws, resulting in symmetric teeth and a proper dental arch. Aligning the upper teeth in front of the lower teeth will restore natural dental function and enhance overall facial aesthetics.
