What Causes Buck Teeth?Buck teeth are often a result of genetics. If bite issues were a problem for older members of your family, then you may fall victim to them as well (this is not always the case). Bite issues can also be the cause of non-nutritive sucking behavior (NNSB). If the infant starts sucking on their thumb or using a pacifier early on in the development of their permanent teeth, it can potentially cause the teeth to come in at an odd angle.
What are buck teeth?
Buck teeth, also known as an overbite (malocclusion), aren’t necessarily an issue if it doesn’t cause any medical issues that may be of concern.
Buck teeth may make the person self-conscious about their appearance. If it is noticeable it may be a cause for concern as people may make fun of the person for having an overbite. For these reasons and others, people quite often tend to get these bite issues realigned.
