If you have an overbite do you need full braces?

Perhaps

Head-jaw
If you have an excessive overbite in all probability other teeth and/or jaws are mal-related. Don't go looking for "quickie fix". Look for "best (esthetic & functional) most stable fix." Even if your General Dentist does braces or Invisalign, they do not have the same training and experience as an Orthodontic Specialist. Get the CORRECT answer from a pro, see an Orthodontist.

How much of an overbite do you have to have to consider braces? Our dentist recommended that we should look into getting braces for our daughter due to her overbite. I'll admit that she does have a very slight overbite, but it doesn't bother her, and it's

I agree. Orthodontic

Dentist
treatment is not merely for cosmetic purposes. Abnormal alignment of the maxilla & mandible can lead to Temporo- Mandibular Joint (TMJ) Syndrome in adulthood with chronic neck pain, sleeping problems, jaw pain and migraines. Overbites can cause teeth to wear unevenly. Seek 2 orthodontic opinions to assure yourself that the money will be well-spent.

Want to know what braces do I need for an overbite?

Not that simple

Depends on whether overbite is dental, skeletal, or both/age of patient and available growth/crowding-spacing/molar & canine relationships/ and many other factors. Short answer, see a qualified Orthodontic Specialist to evaluate your problem. Know that gold standard of care is still braces.

Can you tell me if I am likely to need braces for my overbite?

Probably

Overbite
Most efficient way to resolve a malocclusion (bad bite) is realigning the teeth and jaws. Ask your dentist to refer you to an Orthodontic Specialist for an initial examination (often complimentary) and guidance. Then you can make decisions based on knowledge rather than supposition.

Dr. Meng K. Syn answered:

I have a terrible overbite and crowding on my bottom teeth. Do I need braces?

Yes,

Open-uri20121031-2223-1yu9bm
The question now, is not if you need orthodontics but whether you need orthodontics to treat crowding, or a skeletal condition. An orthodontist will need to take some records to tell you accurately what can be done . See you general dentist for a referral to an orthodontist that he works with. It is vital to maintain your dental health during orthodontic treatment.
