Will braces help at all with the overbite?

Written by Dr. Chaw Su Kyi on October 20, 2011

I have an overbite and crooked teeth. Will braces help at all with the overbite?

Yes, brace treatment would most definitely help correct the overbite. Fixed braces work by producing gentle forces to guide the teeth into the correct positions. By moving the teeth into their ideal positions, the overbite can be corrected along with straightening the teeth.
