Does the occlusion splint correct...
Does the occlusion splint correct the overbite? My dentist is getting one for me. I was a bit intrigued as he just took impression of upper teeth (jaw) only. didn't took for lower jaw. Is he on right track ?

If your Dentist took an impression of only the upper teeth, then he could very well be making you a splint or biteguard or nightguard, but NOT anything that would be able to correct an overbite. I'd suggest to give the Dental Office a call tomorrow and clarify just what your Dentist is making for you & what it "will do".

Already emailed them and will also call them first thing in morning. Thank you very much for supersonic response.
what are the treatment options to correct the overbite. Don't want surgery or any other invasive treatment.

Does the above make sense?

I'd just perhaps give them a quick call in the morning for clarification/possible alteration to get "What YOU want"!

It could be something fairly easy (similar to a biteguard) all the way to something much more involved (such as braces).

I'd merely correspond with them. Ask them what you asked me. They need to explain, the differences, the cost differentials, etc..

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
