My teeth are crooked and have been a hugre issue for me. I have a severe overbite with a crossbite. I am looking for alternatives to jaw surgery since I have been to several dentists and they all said i would need surgery to correct my bite before I am a candidate for braces.I have even thought about Invisalign but often, I am told I am not a candidate. I am tired of hiding behind my smile or not talking to people directly in the face because I am ashamed of my teeth.
What are my less costly, less invasive alternatives?
