Underbite is when the bottom teeth stick out more than the top teeth when biting together.
“Since I was little my dentist told me I had an underbite. My parents took me to see an orthodontist. The first two orthodontists told me I needed jaw surgery to fix my underbite. When we went to Dr. Hsu, she told us that sometimes people do need jaw surgery to fix their bite. But when she checked my teeth and jaw, she said I could have my underbite corrected without jaw surgery. Two years later I have straight teeth, a good bite and I’m not embarrassed about my smile anymore.”
