A 47-year-old female asked:

After braces, why does it still look like my daughter has an overjet when she talks, but when she bites it is only a 2 mm overjet? Can that be fixed?

Ortho results: You spent substantial money and time for Orthodontic treatment. Your question should be directed to the Orthodontist who actually treated your daughter. If you are not satisfied with the results or the explanation given to you be the treating doctor, you can always see another Orthodontist for a second opinion.

I would add to Dr. Sandler's excellent answer that manyDentists who are not Orthodontic Specialists attempt Orthodontic Treatment. Important that you make sure you are seeing a fully qualified Orthodontic Specialist for your second opinion.
