Braces make Bucked Teeth straight? I am a 24 year old female inquiring about braces.

I would like to know if I get braces because I have an overbite (bucked teeth) and a gap will it make my teeth straight?

How soon will I notice a diffrence? When will the teeth start to shift? Do they hurt and what to expect. ...Visitor from GA

There is no question that braces will help straighten your teeth, however your overbite may be a result of your lower jaw bone being setback in relationship to the upper jaw.

You would need to seek a consultation to determine a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

As far as your gap and initial straightening, you will notice a difference within the first 8-10 weeks. And yes, initially you will have some discomfort, but nothing that can't be managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

The initial discomfort may last approximately 5-7 days when you first get your braces on and some minor discomfort after each adjustment. You will get to a point when you rarely even know you have them on.
