Overbite with missing teeth: I am 29 years old. I had braces as a teenager but later on about 10
years my wisdom teeth on the top came in and pushed my teeth forward. I also had to have my molars on top pulled last year.
I am so ashamed of my smile and would like to know if braces can still be an option even if my top teeth have moved back into an overbite. ...Visitor from MD
Without a proper examination it is hard to definitively state if braces can solve the problem.
However at your age, you should be able to have braces again and have the teeth moved into the postion or close to the position which you want.
