In brief: See orthodontist

A healthy bite and good looking smile is important at any age.
A variety of orthodontic treatments are available today for all ages and all situations (e.g. gaps, overbite). If your doc is a Board Certified orthodontist is the best way to achieve your treatment goals. Orthodontists are trained three years longer than a general dentist. Good luck.
