What is a "passive mouth"?
What is a "receiving mouth?"This is a condition in which the lower front teeth are more outward than the upper front teeth when chewing.
In dentistry, it is called "counterbite," "mandibular prognathism," or "Class III" in terms of bite classification.
There are several types of passive mouths,
- Type with lower front teeth growing outward
- Type in which the lower jaw is larger than the upper jaw
Is a passive mouth cute? How is it different from a hunchback?
Since it is not a dental term, no definition exists, but "passive mouth" and "squatting" may refer to different conditions.
Receiving mouth" is primarily a condition of the bite and alignment of the teeth in the mouthand refers to theThe term "squatting" refers to a skeletal condition in which the lower jaw protrudes when looking at the contour or profile of the face.It seems to be often the case.
There are two types of passive mouth, one in which the lower front teeth grow outward and the other in which the lower jaw is larger than the upper jaw,
- Type in which the lower front teeth grow outward → "Receptive mouth".
- Type with a larger lower jaw than upper jaw → "squatting".
This is how we see it.
The word "squat" may not give a good impression, but there are procedures in which a prosthesis or hyaluronic acid is injected into the tip of the lower jaw to give it height in order to improve the profile, and this does not necessarily mean that the squat is not cute.
Can you cure a passive mouth on your own?
If you already have a passive mouth,Unfortunately, it cannot be cured on its own.
However, training of the tongue, lips, and other parts of the mouth can be expected to prevent the severity of passive mouth.
Training to prevent severe cases of passive mouth
Perform training 1-3 5-10 times a day.
You can do it whenever you like, divide it into three parts, etc., but it is easier to make it a habit if you decide on the timing and the number of times to do it at a time.
- Close your lips and touch the buccal side of your lower left back tooth with your tongue.
- Continue to lick the front side of the lower teeth in a circular motion with your tongue, moving it to the lower right cheek. At this point, be aware that you should hold the lower front teeth inward with your tongue.
- When the bottom is finished, lick your tongue in a circular motion from the inside of the upper right back tooth to the inside of the upper left back tooth.
Treatment of Receptive Mouth
Because the passive mouth cannot be cured by itself,Basically, orthodontic treatment is required.
Types of orthodontic appliances available for the treatment of passive mouth
Orthodontic appliances are either mouthpiece braces, which use a clear mouthpiece, or wire braces, which attach wires to the front or back of the teeth.
The indication for orthodontic appliances depends on the difficulty of the case and the dentist's judgment of the difficulty of the patient's case of passive mouth.
Differences in treatment methods depending on the difficulty of the case
Treatment methods vary depending on the difficulty of the case of passive mouth.

severe ukegaki (protrusion of the upper lip and lower lip)
In severe cases of passive mouth, there is often a problem with the balance between the size of the upper and lower jaws.
Therefore, in addition to extracting and aligning the teeth,To correct the imbalance between the upper and lower jaws, surgery may be performed to cut the lower jaw and retract it back.
Orthodontic treatment involving surgery to cut the jaw is called "surgical orthodontics," and a diagnosis of "jaw deformity" may be made, in which the jaw deformity interferes with the bite.
If the patient has jaw deformities that result in a passive mouth, orthodontic treatment can be covered by insurance if an orthodontic appliance is used that is attached to the front of the teeth with wires.
Entertainers with a passive mouth

A passive mouth can affect pronunciation and the ability to chew food, and many people have a less-than-ideal image of the bite, also known as "squatting" because of the shape of the jaw.
