increased overjet


Explanation:
The "overjet" is the horizontal projection of upper teeth beyond the lower.

That mesure is, ussually, around 3-4 mm... if you measure more than 4 mm, you found the "increased overjet".

Example sentence(s):
  • "Class 2 bite with excessive horizontal overjet"
  • "There have been no widely used criteria and methods of measurement for evaluating the incisor relationship in terms of overjet and overbite"
