I'm wondering if I should fix my overbite or not. My teeth are straight and look nice except for my really big overbite. The main problem I have with it is my front teeth are always showing and I have a lisp. My lips don't really seal naturally because my teeth get in the way... which is why my teeth are always showing.
My dentists says I'll need braces for several years to fix it. I don't think I want to do it because I'm already 21 and it sounds really painful and long to fix this.
Will I have any long-term problems if I don't fix this? I'm not sure I want to go through with it.
If this is something that is bothering you, then you might want to go ahead and get it fixed. I am 29 and getting ready to get braces for the 2nd time in my life. On of my husbands commanders is 40 and just got braces. So it is never to late.
