Hi doctor,

My daughter is 14 years old and is concerned about her protruding chin. She also has an overbite. Can braces treatment help in solving this issue? Kindly give your suggestions.



Welcome to

I understand your concern. Orthodontic treatment is not just about the teeth and their alignment but also dentofacial corrections. The assistance of other methods, along with braces is required to correct her face and teeth alignment. I suggest you share the following pictures of your daughter for further evaluation. Please take front face, side profile, a smiling picture, and side profile of the teeth. Kindly report back with the pictures. Thank you.

Regarding follow up:

Kindly share with me the following pictures. Please send face frontal, face side profile, teeth smiling and teeth side profile. This will enable me to evaluate her chin position as well as teeth positions to guide you better on the possible treatment options.
