The Xbow® is an orthodontic appliance created by Dr. Higgins that has been in use by orthodontists around the world since 2002. It is used to correct what the general public refers to as an overbite, where the upper teeth are too far out from the bottom teeth, preventing the bite from fitting together the way it should. In addition to the aesthetic considerations of upper and lower teeth that don’t fit together correctly, a bite that does not fit together correctly can lead to abnormal wear of the teeth or risk of fracture. The results are a beautiful bite and a beautiful smile in a time that averages about 12 months with Xbow® followed by about 12 months with braces.
