Braces for an Overbite?

Braces will correct an overbite but you do not have an excessive overbite and therefore do not need correction. I'm not saying you don't need braces to correct other problems you may have (unable to tell with the given information) but you don't need overbite correction.

Good luck!

Yes, orthodontics using either braces, or clear aligners such as invisalign would help in improving overbite!
Its important to have a complete examination done to find the best treatment option!
All the best,
