In the case of bimaxillary protrusion, where the mouth protrudes more than normal, improvement can be achieved through orthodontic treatment. Bimaxillary protrusion is a 1st degree condition where the bite is normal but the front teeth and gum protrude more than normal. This condition arises when the jaw size cannot accommodate the number of teeth present. Protrusion of the front teeth may give an unwanted impression when the mouth is closed or a 'gummy' smile.
