My Problem



Frequently Asked Questions

Oftentimes, patients are referred for a problem, but don’t really know why. Below is a brief list of common problems. Bite problems can result from dental problems and/or skeletal problems. Dr. Renick will evaluate the bite at your consult appointment to make the diagnosis and help you understand what needs to be done to correct it. A “malocclusion” simply means the bite is not correct. Many people have many questions and this will be an evergrowing page. If you don’t see your question or answer below, drop us a line at and we’ll add it to the list! Educating our patients about their issues is one of our main goals.

What is “Overjet”?

Picture a “jet” plane taking off on a runway. Overjet is a horizontal front to back problem. The top teeth are too far in front of the bottom teeth. This is found in what we call a class II malocclusion. It can be a result of a thumb or finger sucking habit or it can result from lack of growth of the lower jaw.
