I am a 27 year old female. My front teeth don't touch at all. I am afraid of surgery and have managed to eat fine but I want to know if an open bite will cause problems in the future and if there is a way of correcting it without surgery. I don't currently have dental insurance but I have had my teeth cleaned approximately every 6-9 months. I live in Arizona and would be happy to buy dental insurance if this problem could be fixed but have no clue about such things. Thank you in advance!
