Transforming Smiles & Functionality: How Full Mouth Dental Implants Can Correct Bite Issues Even After Early Treatment Age

by Andrew Mueller, DMD, MD | Dec 7, 2023

Bite issues, such as underbites, overbites, or crossbites, can have a significant impact on both the aesthetics and functionality of the jaw and teeth. While early treatment is often recommended, many individuals with these bite problems may have missed the opportunity for intervention during their younger years. However, the advancement of dental technology has paved the way for a solution that can change smiles and enhance jaw functionality, even for those past the age of early treatment. In this article, we’ll explore how full mouth dental implants can be a transformative option for individuals seeking to address bite issues later in life.

How Does Having Dental Implants Affect Overbites or Underbites?

Overbites (where upper front teeth extend beyond or overlap the lower teeth), underbites (where the lower front teeth extend beyond or overlap the upper teeth), crossbites (where upper teeth fit behind lower teeth when closed), and other bite issues can negatively impact confidence, oral function, and dental and overall health in a variety of different ways.  From tooth decay to gum disease, bad breath, missing teeth, tooth enamel damage, speech and eating challenges, aesthetic concerns, jaw and jawbone health issues, and more, there are many significant reasons to correct dental malocclusions.

At Doctors Implants, we take great pride in helping patients with lifelong bite issues overcome them with full mouth dental implants. By expertly redesigning your smile, we can effectively eliminate the issues associated with dental malocclusions. Countless patients have experienced the transformative power of our groundbreaking 6 Hour Smile, and you can be next. We look forward to creating a personalized treatment plan to alleviate your bite issues and encourage you to book a free consultation with one of our doctors!

Are There Special Implants to Fix Misaligned Bites?

While individual or even multiple implants may serve to effectively replace missing teeth, they generally won’t have a significant impact on the overall alignment of your bite.

Full mouth dental implants (implants that replace all the teeth in your mouth), on the other hand, do have the potential to resolve malocclusions and are by far the best solution for treating misaligned teeth that are also failing. At Doctors Implants, full mouth dental implants are our expertise.

A full mouth restoration offers the opportunity to comprehensively redesign your teeth and resolve bite issues that may have been plaguing you since you were young.  Achieving a proper bite can be a life-changing experience that allows you to move forward with newfound confidence, oral function, and dental health.

Many patients only consider full mouth dental implants as a solution for failing and/or missing teeth, but the procedure also has much to offer in terms of malocclusion correction. Also, malocclusions and failing or missing teeth often go hand in hand, meaning the 6 Hour Smile can be an all-in-one opportunity to address multiple dental issues at once.

How Can Bite Issues Be Fixed With Implants?

At Doctors Implants, our highly qualified and experienced Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons approach each patient with genuine care and the understanding that every case is unique. Using state-of-the-art tools and advanced techniques that have been refined and proven thousands of times over, we place implants with unparalleled precision and create beautiful new smiles that function completely naturally.

During your free doctor consultation, you’ll have a CT scan taken of your mouth, providing a template for our skilled, in-house lab team and smile engineers to work with as they design and craft your new and properly aligned smile. On the day of your 6 Hour Smile Procedure, your expert Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon will perform tooth extractions on any remaining natural teeth and prepare your jawbone to receive implants.

At Doctors Implants, we use computer-guided spatial technology to ensure incredibly precise implant placement that provides a secure and accurately positioned foundation for your prosthetic teeth. At the end of the day, you’ll leave our office with a brand new smile that is completely free of bite issues.

Will My Dental Implants Look Like Natural Teeth?

Yes.  Full mouth dental implants are a permanent tooth replacement solution that looks and functions almost exactly like natural teeth. At Doctors Implants, we craft our prosthetic teeth at our own proprietary lab from zirconia, a premium ceramic material that combines the strength of metal with the aesthetic appeal of porcelain. Our zirconia crowns are ten times stronger than natural teeth but closely mimic the appearance of natural tooth enamel.
