I'm curious if you need braces for fixing an overbite?

Depends

Whether or not your overbite will require orthodontic treatment or not may depend upon the severity of your problem, as well as the dentist treating you. A consultation with an orthodontist would be recommended.

I have an overbite and I'm concerned if I need braces. What are the reasons for needing it?

Lots

Overbite
Put teeth & jaws where they belong they work better, wear out less, are easier to clean, are better supported by gums/bone, look better, and make it easier for your Dentist to keep your mouth in a state of optimum health. All this translates into shorter, easier, and (importantly) less costly dental visits.

It depends if your problem is dental or skeletal in nature. You best bet is to consult with a local orthodontist who can actually examine your condition and treat you.

Dr. Daniel Wolter answered:

How do braces fix the overbite?

Braces Align Teeth

Overbite
If your overbite is off because your teeth are in the wrong positions, then braces can move your teeth into the proper positions, resulting in a pleasing smile & proper bite. If, however, your overbite is off because your upper and lower jaws aren't aligned correctly, then braces will have limited success. Bone problems cannot be corrected predictably with braces in adults. In kids often they can.

Orthodontics can improve malocclusions. Depending upon your particular condition, and your feelings about treatment, orthodontics may or may not be necessary. Discuss this with a dental professional.

If I have a overbite do I need braces ?

Perhaps

Overbite
A horizontal overbite greater than 2mm or a vertical overbite deeper than 50% are indications that there are other problems. See an Orthodontic Specialist for an initial examination (often complimentary) to answer the question.

Yes, but...

A slight overbite is normal, and is the result that most orthodontist attempt to achieve. The upper teeth usually have the lower teeth residing "inside" them, and is considered best for function. Braces can correct an overbite if the bite (occlusion) is not allowing a patient to chew properly or if esthetically the smile is affected.
