Ex-thumb sucker best treatment for severe overjet? (photo)

In the pictures I have my mouth shut as far as I can. I sucked my thumb for 25 years. I'm 26 now and want to get my teeth corrected is braces or Invisalign the best choice?

Invisalign is out


The only option is braces, and may require some surgery as well. Contact and consult an orthodontist. You may need a surgical consultation as well. If the habit still remains, nothing will last.
