Yes, this can definitely be addressed. Many adults have orthodontic treatment done. We have patient’s as old as 80 years old who undergo orthodontic treatment. Also, there are a variety of different options to address your “buck teeth.” The first step is to start with an initial consultation to learn more about what you can do.
Have a great day!
Thank you for your question and I hope this helps.
1) Your upper teeth may be flared out with lots of spacing present. If that is the case, then closing those spaces in a certain way will correct your problem.
2) Your problem may be caused by a dental problem requiring us to move the teeth in each jaw in a certain way to correct the excess overbite. You may or may not require extractions.
3) You may have a true jaw discrepancy. Your upper jaw may be too big OR your lower jaw may be too small. Each problem requires a different solution.
The best thing for you to do is visit the orthodontist (a specialist in orthodontics) and have a complete examination performed. Orthodontic records (X-rays, photos, impressions, or scans) will probably suggested to receive an exact diagnosis & a treatment plan. You will probably be given some different options of treatment.
Good luck achieving a beautiful smile. It’s definitely worth the time & finances that you will invest.
