Open bite is when the front and/or side teeth don’t touch when biting together.
“None of my teeth touched except the very back ones. I had a hard time chewing my food. Every time my dentist told me to bite down, I told him I already was biting down. He recommended that I see Dr. Hsu for braces to fix my bite. Dr. Hsu closed down my bite and she even didn’t need to pull teeth out. I can eat everything and I’m still getting used to chewing using all of my teeth.”
