In brief: Orthodontics

Orthodontic treatment (braces) are designed to fix this type of problem. Invisalign is another option for some patients.
Ask yourself: how long do I want to keep my teeth. Orthodontic treatment is one way to help ensure longevity of your teeth...Along with good brushing and flossing habits and regular dental checkups.

Seems to be a theme here.
If teeth and/or jaws are out of position, the specialist that is trained to straighten them is an orthodontist. It's an investment in yourself. Put your teeth and jaws where they belong, they are easier to care for, uneven wear is eliminated, the supporting bone & gums remain healthier, your jaw joints will be protected, and you'll love looking at yourself in a mirror.

In brief: Orthodontics

"overbites" and "crowded teeth" are examples of malocclusions that orthodontists see each and every day in their practices.
If the overbite and crowded teeth bother you, schedule a consultation with an orthodontic specialist in your area (ask your dentist or friends who know a good orthodontist for a recommondation).
