Fix Underbite without Surgery? I'm 19 years old and I have a mini underbite.
Its not that bad but it is still an underbite! Because of the underbite, my face looks flat, except for my nose.
Is it possible to correct my underbite without having surgery? I'm scared of surgery. ...Visitor from Vancouver British Columbia Canada

In a moderate anterior crossbite situation that you describe, it is possible to correct the crossbite without surgery, taking for granted the bone structure is typical of a healthy nineteen year old.
The maxillary (upper) teeth can be pushed forward.
