Yes, braces treatment can correct the problems of overbite which is causing functional as well as aesthetic problems..... the treatment duration will be somewhere around 1 to 1.5 years..... the best guidance can be given to you by an orthodontist who performs a clinical examination and evaluates your x-rays before the treatment planning....
