  • Headgear needs to be worn between 12-22 hours each day to be effective in correcting the overbite, typically for 12 to 18 months depending on the severity of the overbite, how much it is worn and what growth stage the patient is in. (wikipedia.org)
  • Headgear needs to be worn approximately 12 to 22 hours a day to be truly effective in correcting the overbite, and treatment is usually anywhere from 6 to 18 months in duration, depending on the severity of the overbite and how much a patient is growing. (wikipedia.org)

  • Malocclusion is a common finding, although it is not usually serious enough to require treatment. (wikipedia.org)
