I have an extremely bad overbite. It's to the point that my top teeth completely cover my bottom teeth (Photo)

and I was wondering if braces can help me cause I'm not comfortable with doing the surgery cause the thought of surgery tends to spike my anxiety?

Correcting a Deep Overbite

Yes, you can correct your deep overbite with braces alone. You may first need to do some arch development but this will only be known once you have a consultation with the treating doctor. Whatever you do, do NOT extract any teeth to fix the deep overbite.

Good luck!
