Of course: It is a common orthodontic condition and fortunately, this condition is relatively easy to correct. If the underbite is severe, the corrective braces or even surgery may be required. See your orthodontist for evaluation, diagnosis and treatment.

Yes & No: Depending on the severity of the problem. Some case can be fixed with braces while others need surgical intervention in addition to braces.

Sometimes: Tooth malposition can be resolved with braces. If jaws do not match, however, both teeth and jaws require correction. Please call an Orthodontic Specialist for an initial examination (usually free or modest cost) to learn the complexity of your malocclusion and your treatment options.

Highly likely: sounds like a minor underbite which we correct with braces on a very regular basis

Possibly: Consult with a local orthodontist. They will evaluate your teeth and bone and determine if orthodontics alone can help you.
