What Is Overlapping Teeth?

Do you have overlapping teeth? No worries, you're definitely not alone. This is a pretty common issue that many people face. But did you know that having overlapping teeth can actually lead to various oral health problems if left unaddressed?

As the name suggests, overlapping teeth or misaligned teeth refer to overlapping teeth that are positioned in front of adjacent teeth on the same dental arch.

Unfortunately, some people have multiple overlapping teeth that can seriously affect the appearance and function of their smile.

Now, you might be wondering what causes this issue in the first place and how you can fix it. Well, here's the deal: If you want to straighten your teeth and fix overlapping or misaligned teeth, it's not a good idea to try doing it yourself after watching some how-to clips on YouTube.

Straightening your teeth at home might seem tempting, but it's actually quite complicated and requires a deep understanding of various elements such as human physiology, tooth size, shape, and morphology. So, it's best to leave it to the professionals.

Overlapping Teeth Correction Methods

Whether it's for health or cosmetic reasons, correcting your misaligned teeth can bring a dramatic change to your smile.

But before you make any decisions, there are a few things to consider such as the cost of the treatment, the severity of your overlapping teeth, and any other dental issues related to your misaligned teeth.

For those with mild overlapping teeth, you might opt to care for your teeth and avoid future problems or you might still choose to straighten them to get that stunning smile.

But for those with moderate to severe overlapping teeth, it's highly recommended to seek treatment from a dentist or orthodontist. Now, let's explore some popular ways to fix overlapping teeth:


Braces are one of the most common treatments for overlapping teeth. They use a combination of metal or ceramic brackets and ligature elastics to move teeth into position over one to three years. While braces are effective, they require a lot of patience and commitment.


If you're looking for a non-invasive procedure, veneers might be an option, especially for slight overlapping problems. Veneers are custom-made to cover your teeth and improve their appearance. However, veneers can be costly, especially if made from porcelain.

Dental Sculpting

Dental sculpting is another option for mild overlapping issues. During this procedure, the orthodontist will use a laser or drill to shave off the enamel and create more space. While the procedure is minimally invasive, it can weaken your teeth.

Surgery or Tooth Extraction

In severe cases, your orthodontist may recommend surgery, such as jaw reshaping or tooth extraction. These procedures are only recommended in acute overlapping cases where other treatment options are ineffective.

Clear Aligners

Clear aligners, such as Invisalign, have become increasingly popular due to their convenience, comfort, and discretion. They work by using clear plastic aligners to apply gentle pressure to your teeth and shift them into their correct position. They're removable and virtually invisible, making them an attractive option for many people.

Causes of Overlapping Teeth

Let's talk about why your teeth might be overlapping. There are actually a variety of potential reasons for this issue, ranging from genetic factors to certain oral habits.

First things first, if your malocclusion (overlapping teeth) is classified as primary overlapping, then your alignment issue is likely hereditary, meaning it's just in your genes.

On the other hand, if it's classified as secondary overlapping, then oral habits are likely the culprit. In other words, your teeth have gradually become overlapped over time due to certain habits or behaviors.

Now, you might be wondering what some of these oral habits are. Well, here are just a few examples:
