I had a sister who had that same problem, except she decided to get surgery instead. 5 years later it's like she never had an under bite. Maybe, if you want to, you can do the same thing and get surgery over braces

"Doctor, would you do me the pleasure of biting me?" "Erm...ok?" *slowly takes a bite out of OP's arm* This is the scenario in my head. I don't see how that would help the situation.

I'm 4 weeks out of corrective jaw surgery to correct my underbite, and I'm only slightly numb on the corners of my lips. Recovery is tough, but it's so worth it to have the smile you want :)

I googled images of massive underbites and I didn't see a single one that justified corrective surgery or even braces. Is there a medical reason you would want one? I have a fairly substantial overbite and have never had issues, so I'm curious if it's something different for underbites.

My ortho was trying to tell me to get jaw surgery, where they would essentially break my jaw, reposition it, and fuse it in place with screws. Uhm, I like how my face looks, thanks, I'm not risking fucking that up. Especially when he said it was a 75% chance my face would look significantly different.

Nah, it's just a way of orthodontist getting money out of you. When you get braces they help with under bites and over bites, that's why they make a mold of your set of teeth; to find all of your flaws. Braces aren't just for crooked teeth. That's how I got my slight over bite fixed.

44- Braces do correct over and under bites but if you don't wear a retainer, or night guard your teeth will naturally try and move back. that's why a lot of people also have wires on the back of their teeth, even after they have had their braces removed.

62- That wire you're referring to is an option. I had braces, and my orthodontist gave me a choice between the two types of retainers. One is the clear mold that you slip onto your teeth, and the other one is the one with the wires. EDIT: I misread. Feel free to thumb down.

98- i guess all orthodontists are different because I didn't have the option, I have both the wire on the backs of my front teeth and the clear retainer that I wear at night.

The first clear mold for me was covered, but if wrecked/ lost it I wold of needed to pay for it. It just depends on the orthodontist. I will have these wires on the backs of my teeth forever or until they fall off or something.

7: No, the exact same thing happened to me after 2 1/2 years with braces. There are 3 options to the situation: 1. Get your jaw realigned by having braces put back on 2. Get your jaw realigned by having them break it and wiring your mouth shut for weeks 3. Give up and live with the underbite I have to wait until I stop growing (18 or 19) before I can consider anything due to the possibility of the jaw repositioning itself if I do it sooner. The joys of life...
