Overbite is when the top front teeth hang too far over the bottom front teeth. Overbite is one of the most frequent tooth misalignments. By the way, a slight overbite still isn't seen as a tooth misalignment, it is totally normal. You only need treatment with braces if the top and bottom teeth are too far apart.
